HC Deb 07 April 1913 vol 51 cc811-2
54. Mr. NEWMAN

asked whether, in the event of the Government of Ireland Bill becoming law by the 30th June, 1914, under the terms of the Parliament Act, it is the present intention of the Government to postpone by Order of the King in Council the summoning of the Irish Parliament until such date as will allow of any measure of registration or of electoral reform, including the abolition of the plural vote, that may be proposed during the present Session, being voted on by 103 representatives from Ireland and being subsequently passed into law under the terms of the Parliament Act by the House as at present constituted?


The hon. Member's question is based on hypothesis and deals with matters which, so far as I am aware, have not been considered by the Government.
