§ 23. Captain REDMOND
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Irish Convention reported unanimously in favour 1933 of a scheme to complete land purchase in Ireland; and whether he intends to introduce a Bill upon those lines?
§ The ATTORNEY-GENERAL for IRELAND (Mr. Arthur Samuels)
The Irish Convention did agree in their Report as to a scheme of land purchase, but it is not proposed by the Government to introduce legislation on the subject at present.
§ Captain REDMOND
Is the Government going to allow the question of land purchase in Ireland, as well as every other question affecting Ireland, to drift?
§ Sir EDWARD CARSON
May I ask my right hon. and learned Friend if unanimity of all parties in Ireland is an obstacle to getting legislation for Ireland?
