HC Deb 30 July 1923 vol 167 cc1023-4
46. Captain BENN

asked the Prime Minister whether he can yet make a statement, relative to the inquiry into the Regulations made under the Restoration of Order in Ireland Act?


Yes, Sir; I have now appointed Mr. George Talbot, K.C., Mr. Walter Runciman, and Lord Chelmsford to be a Committee to review the provisions of the Restoration of Order in Ireland Act and of the Regulations made under that Act, and to report what, if any, powers thereby conferred should in the public interest be retained, whether temporarily or permanently. Mr. Talbot will be the Chairman of the Committee.

Captain BENN

Will the Report be published?


I would like to consider that question.

Captain Viscount CURZON

How many members of that Committee belong to the Conservative party?
