HC Deb 07 May 1912 vol 38 c352W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the proposed Irish Government, if constituted, would have power to repeal Statutes of the Imperial Parliament, for instance, amongst many others, the Tramways and Light Railways Act, 1883, under which the dividends on moneys lent by the public are guaranteed by counties or baronies; and will he make provision for the protection of those who lent their money on the faith of Imperial Statutes, the abrogation of which will be within the powers of an Assembly which might not inspire so much confidence as the Parliament of the United Kingdom?


The Bill already contains provision for the purpose mentioned.
