HC Deb 27 July 1922 vol 157 cc804-5

Resolution reported, That a sum, not exceeding £33,579, be granted to His Majesty, to complete the sum necessary to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1923, for the Salaries and Expenses of the Irish Office, including certain Allowances for Disturbance, etc., and for Sundry Services in Ireland.

Resolution read a Second time.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth agree with the Committee in the said Resolution."


I should just like to offer a protest against all these Votes going through in this fashion, and particularly in respect to the Vote with which we are now busy. On this we ought to have been able to have a discussion on the question of Irish finance, and as to the proper authorities in relation to it, and so on. I protest strongly that the Front Bench are dealing with the matter in this way.
