§ MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY (Limerick, W.)
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can say whether, when introducing a clause in the Public Works Loans Bill of this year dealing with the question of outstanding loans under the Labourers' (Ireland) Acts, he will make it apply to loans given to farmers in Ireland 115 for the purpose of building hay-sheds on their farms and have it retospective.
§ MR. ASQUITH
No, Sir. The case of the Labourers' Act loans is exceptional in some respects. I do not propose to interfere with the conditions of other outstanding loans.
