HC Deb 23 May 1906 vol 157 c1265

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the majority voting in favour of the Town Tenants (Ireland) Bill, he will enable an arrangement to be made to resume discussion in order to send the Bill to the Grand Committee on Law, or whether the Government will introduce a measure this session to carry out the opinion of the House and the demand for immediate legislation by Irish elective bodies upon this question.

(Answered by Sir H. Campbell-Bunnerman.) The sympathy entertained by the Government with some of the provisions of this Bill was expressed in debate last Friday, but in the present state of public business I fear that it is impossible to make any promise to give Government time to any private Member's Bill.
