§ Mr. GINNELL
asked whether the Prime Minister's attention has been called to the Amendments of the Public Trustee Act suggested by the Public Trustee, those Amendments being non-contentious; whether an effort will be made to have them enacted this Session; and, if so, whether he will consider the advisability of extending the amended Act to Ireland, to be administered by an Irish trustee?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
The Government hope it will be possible this Session to introduce and pass a Bill amending the Public Trustee Act in certain uncontentious matters. As regards the question of extending the scope of the Public Trustee Act to Ireland, the Government's view is that, now the Government of Ireland Bill is before the House, other legislation specially affecting Ireland should be restricted as far as possible.
