HC Deb 19 December 1906 vol 167 cc1530-1
MR. WALTER LONG (Dublin, S.)

asked as to the business for that day, and suggested that as the Lords' Amendments to the Town Tenants (Ireland) Bill had not been circulated the discussion thereon should be postponed.


said they were living from hand to mouth, as it were, their daily food being mostly Amendments of the House of Lords, which came to them in courses which they could not anticipate with certainty. They imagined, however, that to-morrow they would be in a position to consider the Lords' Amendments to the Workmen's Compensation Bill. The Report of the Public Trustee Bill would also be put down.


explained that the copies of the Lords' Amendments to the Town Tenants (Ireland) Bill were expected very shortly, and he suggested the House should proceed with the consideration of the first Amendment, which, being of some importance, as it struck out the retrospective character of the Bill, would take some time.


urged that the Public Trustee Bill should be proceeded with first.

MR. JOHN REDMOND (Waterford)

objected to that very strongly as several of his colleagues had come over from Ireland to discuss this matter, and one had to return that night.


said that under the circumstances he was willing to act on the suggestion of the Chief Secretary.
