HC Deb 10 November 1908 vol 196 c33

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, seeing that no body of ratepayers has asked for the enactment of the Tuberculosis Bill, while all classes in Ireland desire the enactment of an adequate Land Bill, and that persisting so late in the Session with one may endanger the other, whether he will consider the advisability of dropping the Tuberculosis Bill in favour of the promised Land Bill.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) I have received many Resolutions from local authorities and other representative bodies in favour of the Tuberculosis Prevention Bill. It is not proposed to drop the Bill.
