HC Deb 02 July 1923 vol 166 cc29-30
52. Captain BENN

asked the Prime Minister whether he can now make a statement as to the Inquiry into the Regulations made under the Restoration of Order in Ireland Act?


I am not yet in a position to make a statement, but I will do so as soon as the Committee is constituted.

Captain BENN

Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that the Indemnity Bill was passed on the understanding that a revision of these powers would be undertaken by the Government?


Yes, and I am exceedingly sorry for the delay, which is because of the illness of the Lord Chancellor. I quite hope that in a few days it will be possible to proceed with the matter.
