§ 39. Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the near approach of Christmas, he will get into touch with the representatives of all shades of opinion in Ireland in order to see if, with the co-operation of the Government, it is possible at this season of peace to bring about a Truce of God?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Lloyd George)
I am quite as anxious as the Noble Lord to see an end of murder in Ireland, and I should not have waited until the approach of Christmas to take any possible steps to secure that object.
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I have repeatedly stated that we are prepared to take any steps to ingeminate peace in Ireland.
