Mr. Lonsdale.

The Speaker withheld

his assent, and de-
clined to put that
Question, as it ap-
peared to him that
the House was pre-
pared to come to a
decision without that
Motion.

" That the position of Vice-President of the Board of Agriculture in
Ireland was intended by Parliament to be and in fact is a Ministerial
and Parliamentary office, properly vacated upon a change of Government,
and that the retention of that office by a political opponent of the
Government of the day is undesirable as a permanent arrangement."

Amendment proposed, to leave out from the word "That,” to the end
of the Question, and add the words "in view of the continued confidence
expressed in the policy of Sir Horace Plunkett by the Council of Agri-
culture, two-thirds of whose Members are directly appointed by the
county councils of Ireland, it is inadvisable, before the Honge has had
an opportunity of considering carefully the Report of the Committee of
Inquiry into the organisation and working of the Department of Agri-
culture and Technical Instruction, to make any change in Sir Horace
Plunkett's tenure of the Vice-Presidency."

“That the words proposed to be left out stand part of the Question."

Mr. Robert Balfour.

"That the Bill be now read a second time."

Amendment proposed, to leave out from the word “That," to the end
of the Question, and add the words, “This House declines to proceed
further with a measure which will cause dislocation and insecurity
amongst those engaged in the licensed victualling trade without any
compensating advantage to the public, which leaves the right of supplying
alcoholic liquor in clubs and dispensaries unrestricted, and which will
deprive brewers, licensees, and the investing public of their property
without compensation.”

“That the words proposed to be left out stand part of the Question."
