§ 16. Mr. GINNELL
asked the number of elected public bodies in Ireland that have adopted resolutions calling for the repeal of the National Insurance Act so far as regards its application to Ireland; and what action it is proposed to take towards meeting their wishes?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
I have received resolutions of the nature indicated from six of the several hundred elected public bodies in Ireland, and I do not propose to take any action on them.
§ Mr. W. O'BRIEN
Does the right hon. Gentleman mean to suggest that only 1746 six representative bodies in Ireland have called for the abrogation of this Act?
§ Mr. GINNELL
Mr. Speaker, the question does not ask the right hon. Gentleman how many have been received, but how many have been adopted?
