HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 c1474

May I ask how many Orders will be taken to-day, and whether the House will sit on Friday?


If there be time, it is intended to take the Bastardy Laws Amendment Act (1872) Amendment Bill, and the Loans (Incumbents of Benefices) Amendment Bill, it is not intended to ask the House to sit on Friday.


Will the right hon. Gentleman name a day on which to discuss the Motion standing on the Paper in the name of the hon. Member for East Mayo? ["That, in the opinion of this House, it is essential that, before the British Government takes part in any proceeding for the resettlement of Europe on the conclusion of peace, the Irish question should be settled in accordance with the principles laid down by President Wilson, that all nations, large and small, should have free self-determination as to their form of government, and that no people should be ruled and dominated even in their own internal affairs by arbitrary and irresponsible force instead of by their own will and choice, principles for which, in the words of the Prime Minister, the Allies are ostensibly fighting in every other country; and that by the application of these principles the system of coercion and military rule, under which Ireland is at present governed, should be brought to an end."]


Yes, I propose to ask the House to take that Motion on Tuesday.

Forward to
