HC Deb 04 August 1902 vol 112 cc516-7
MR. SHEEHAN (Cork Co., Mid.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he intends to introduce a Bill to amend the Labourers (Ireland) Acts this year; and, if so, will he state on what date.


I do not think I can, at the present moment, usefully supplement my reply to the hon. Member's similar Question of 18th June.†


Did not the right hon. Gentleman promise to introduce a Bill?


I said the Government were unable to go further than they had already expressed their willingness to go by putting down Amendments to † See (4) Debates, cix., 973. the Bill before the House. If that course were acceptable time would be found for it.
