§ 32. Major NEWMAN
asked the Homo Secretary whether, in view of the cancelling of all race meetings in Great Britain, it is proposed to cancel or carry out the full autumn and winter list of fixtures in Ireland?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Mr. Harcourt)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. No action in regard to racing in Ireland has been taken by the Board of Trade, and, so far as I am aware, no action is at present contemplated.
§ Sir H. MEUX
Is not that question rather incorrectly worded? I understood that the autumn meeting at Newmarket is to take place as previously arranged. Is that so?
§ Mr. HARCOURT
Yes, Sir; the statement in the hon. Member's question is incorrect, but I cannot undertake to correct all hon. Member's misstatements.
