HC Deb 27 March 1911 vol 23 c1087W

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the continued opposition to the Labourers (Ireland) Bill, he will find some means of overcoming the difficulty which at present blocks the way?


I cannot understand why this Bill, which is supplemental only to an existing measure, should be so persistently blocked. As a Financial Resolution will be necessary before the Committee stage upstairs is proceeded with an opportunity must at once occur after the Second Reading when any statement that is desired can be made. In the meantime the progress of a most useful work is obstructed.
