§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland when he intends to proceed with the Royal Irish Constabulary Bill.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) It is intended to introduce and proceed with the Bill in the coming Autumn Session. Before the Bill can be introduced the necessary Financial Resolution must be passed, and the Committee dealing with the subject has, through pressure of business, been deferred until 12th October.
