§ MR. BARRIE
I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether, in view of the continued injury to the agricultural interests of Ireland, caused by the incidence of the fiscal system of Great Britain, he is prepared, on an early date after the holidays, to give facilities for the discussion of the subject.
§ THE PRIME MINISTER AND FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Sir H. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN,) Stirling Burghs
The hon. Member's Question is of a somewhat controversial character. As at present advised I am not prepared to assent to his assumption that injury to the agricultural interests of Ireland is caused by the incidence of the fiscal system of Great Britain. The hon. Member will therefore see that he cannot in reason ask me for facilities for the discussion of his conclusions.
