§ 46. Dr. CHAPPLE
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the various associations formed for the purpose of advocating the cause of Home Rule for Scotland intend carrying on active propaganda work during the Recess; and whether, in anticipation of the more serious consideration of the subject next Session and the possibility of the consummation of this reform without resort to the provisions of the Parliament Act, he will set up, without unnecessary delay, a Committee to consider the financial relations of England and Scotland?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
As I stated on 28th July, I am not prepared at present to promise to appoint such a Committee.
Mr. FREDERICK HALL (Dulwich)
If it is intended to grant Home Rule to Ireland and Scotland, will the right hon. Gentleman consider extending it to England on the lines suggested by the First Lord of the Admiralty?
Mr. F. HALL
Under these circumstances will England be left out in the cold to be governed by Ireland and Scotland?
§ 47. Mr. COWAN
asked the Prime Minister whether, as a further instalment of the policy of devolution and in view of the Government of Ireland Bill becoming law next year, he proposes to introduce early next Session a Bill for the better government of Scotland on similar lines?
§ 49. Mr. JAMES HOGGE
asked the Prime Minister whether he will undertake to give facilities for a Bill in the next Session to deal with disinterested management in public-houses in Scotland?
