HC Deb 02 November 1908 vol 195 cc795-6
MR. JOHN REDMOND (Waterford)

I beg to ask the Prime Minister if he will state when the amending Land Bill for Ireland, promised in the King's Speech will be introduced; and whether that Bill will deal with the three questions of general amendment of the Law, the question of congestion, and the finance of the Land Act of 1903.

The following Questions also appeared on the Paper.


To ask the Prime Minister whether he can now state when the proposals of the Government with regard to Irish Land Act finance will be laid before the House.


To ask the Prime Minister if he can relieve the suspense in the West of Ireland by stating definitely whether the Government intend to press the Bill for the relief of congestion through the House of Commons this session.


To ask the Prime Minister whether facilities will be given for the prompt discussion of the Government's promised proposals with respect to land purchase finances.


I apologise most sincerely to the hon. Members who have asked me these Questions and to the House, for I have to ask them to allow me still a little further delay, in the hope that I may make a more comprehensive and satisfactory statement on this matter. I trust to do so on Wednesday next.
