HC Deb 13 November 1918 vol 110 cc2835-44

Resolutions reported. That towards making good the Supply granted to His Majesty for the service of the year ended on the 31st day of March, 1917, the sum of £10 to be granted out of the Consolidated Fund of the United Kingdom. That towards making good the Supply granted to His Majesty for the service of the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1919, the sum of £702,656,000 be granted out of the Consolidated Fund of the United Kingdom.

Bill ordered to be brought in upon the said Resolutions by the Chairman of Ways and Means, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Mr. Baldwin. in charge of this matter to give Ireland proper representation. Ireland would like three members at least. This gentleman, Mr. Ponsonby, may be an expert as they say he is, but he is not capable of looking after all Ireland in this matter. I would ask the Chief Secretary to impress on the Government to give Ireland more representation.

Question put, "That this House doth agree with the Committee in the said Resolution."

The House divided:—Ayes, 44; Noes, 11.
