§ Mr. WILLIAM O'BRIEN
asked the Prime Minister whether, in order to allay the anxiety in Ireland caused by a certain recent ministerial announcement, he will say whether the Cabinet, will undertake to pass the Home Rule Bill through the House of Commons in three consecutive Sessions before the present Parliament is dissolved?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I do not know to what announcement the hon. Member refers. I trust that the Bill in question will have a smoother course than he seems to anticipate, but, if it becomes necessary, the Government intend to use all the constitutional means at their disposal to pass it into law during the lifetime of the present Parliament.
