HC Deb 15 May 1912 vol 38 cc1128-9

asked whether the Irish Parliament will be able to borrow money in any market they may prefer; and, in the event of their borrowing from or through foreign financiers, to what extent will they be able to pledge the security they have to offer or to grant any concessions by way of security to such foreign moneylenders?


The Irish Parliament, like other Parliaments in the British Empire, will be able to contract loans in such markets and on such terms as appear to them to be practicable and expedient. They may give whatever security is placed at their disposal by the provisions of their Constitution.
