HC Deb 09 July 1918 vol 108 cc275-6

Considered in Committee, and reported, without Amendment.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read the third time."


I notice the learned Attorney-General for Ireland in his place. I thank him for his explanation on a previous occasion, when he said this was a small measure extending the powers of the Court with regard to the district of Dublin, but might I ask him to give an assurance to the House that this is an Irish Bill which will be put into force? We are getting very much into the habit that when proposals are carried for Ireland they are never put into force. I take it this is a Bill which is intended to come into operation at once.

The ATTORNEY-GENERAL for IRELAND (Mr. Arthur Samuels)

Yes, Sir; the Bill will come into operation at once, and when it comes into operation it will be put into force immediately.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill accordingly read the third time, and passed.
