HC Deb 06 March 1919 vol 113 c626W

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether his attention has been called to the statement of the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture, in Ireland that in the event of the Government putting Home Rule in operation all the Unionist members of the Government will resign; whether this speech was delivered with the authority of the Government; and, if not, what steps will be taken to restrain the growing practice of members of the Government making unauthorised declarations of Government policy?


As I understand it the speech of the Vice-President which referred to the possible imposition of Home Rule on Ulster expressed his own views and did not claim to be any expression of the policy of the Government.
