§ MR. LONSDALE
I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether the inquiry into the system of Government in Ireland, which was mentioned in His Majesty's gracious Speech from the Throne, it still proceeding; and whether any proposals have yet been formulated with a view to the introduction of a Bill next session to constitute a representative body in Dublin for the control of Irish finances, and the performance of such legislative functions as may be delegated to it.
§ SIR H CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
The hon. Gentleman need not be afraid that this question is escaping our attention. The subject is under the consideration of His Majesty's Government, but I am not in a position to make any statement on it.
