§ 48. Mr. JAMES HOPE
asked the Prime Minister whether he will circulate his amended proposals for the government of Ireland in the form of a White Paper?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)
This may ultimately prove to be a convenient mode of circulating the proposals of the Government, but they will, in the 1397 first instance, be stated and explained to the House, in accordance with Parliamentary usage, by a Minister of the Crown.
§ Mr. JAMES HOPE
What interference will result to the financial business necessary to be transacted before the end of March by the issue of a piece of white paper?
