HC Deb 24 October 1916 vol 86 c959W

asked the Prime Minister if he will state the result of his promised consideration to the suggestion of appointing on one of the Committees concerned with industries and commerce after the War an Irishman having a knowledge of Ireland's undeveloped peat resources and an interest other than personal in the founding of peat industries for the utilisation of bogs in Ireland?


Two representatives of Ireland have already been appointed to the Committee on Commercial and Industrial Policy after the War. Their attention will no doubt be directed, if necessary, to the suggestion contained in the hon. Member's question.
