§ 45. Mr. CURRIE
asked the Prime Minister whether he received from office-bearers of the United Free Church of Scotland a communication stating their view that the interests of their co-religionists in Ireland demanded the modification of the Government of Ireland Bill; whether he will inform the House what reply he made thereto; and whether such reply contained an assurance that the undertaking given to General Gough would be acted up to by the Government?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I have received a memorial from certain office-bearers of the United Free Church of Scotland, the terms of which and the signatories were published in the Scottish Press on the 17th instant. I understand that the reply which I sent to the memorial will also be published shortly. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
§ Mr. J. M. HOGGE
Can the Prime Minister say if he has received any communication from the United Free Church Assembly or only from a few office-bearers?
