HC Deb 22 March 1911 vol 23 c559W

asked the Chief Secretary whether, for the convenience of Members from Ireland, he can now state when he will take the Second Reading of the Irish Labourers Bill?


I should be glad to get the Bill through its Second Reading any night, and have made numerous attempts to do so, but without success, owing to opposition. As I have already pointed out, a financial resolution will be necessary before the Bill goes into Committee, and this will afford an opportunity for a statement with regard to the objects of the Bill, which, however, are already known.
