§ 55. Mr. MacCAW
asked the Prime Minister whether under the provisions of the Government of Ireland Bill, it would be competent for any Member of the British House of Commons to move a vote of censure on the Irish Government; and, if so, in the event of such vote of censure being adopted by the British House of Commons, will he say by what means would it be conveyed to the Irish Government; and what effect would such vote of censure exercise on the action of that Government?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
There is nothing in the Government of Ireland Bill to prevent a Member of the British House of Commons moving a vote of censure on the Irish Government. There is no provision in that Bill, nor would any provision seem necessary, to provide for any special communication to the Irish Government of such a vote of censure. The effect that the vote of censure would have on the Irish Government must, of course, depend on the circumstances under which it is carried.
