HOME RULE.

GOVERNMENT'S PLAN FOR

SETTLEMENT.

NOT FOR PUBLICATION

(Per PreßS Association— Copyright).

: LONDON, February 25.

In the House of Commons, Mr B. G. Falle urged that it was imperative that the Prime Minister should submit the proposed alteration to the Home Rule Bill without delay.

Mr Asquitii said there was no indication that the electorate was adverse to the Bill, and no reason for the Govern- -_ ment to hoist the white flag. It was not intended to abandon the Bill or yield to the menace, of physical force. The Home Rule Bill would be read a. second time after the.end of the financial year, or before Easter. The Government would then explain its proposals. It was not going to b© brow-beaten into a course which would >emba'rrass> the prospects of basing Irish self-government on a foundation of consent and goodwill.

Mr Bonar Law said the Premier was still drifting. The Government could go to the country or exclude Ulster. He would regard any' other' proposal as a declaration of war, and the sooner the Government's decision was known the better. For the first time in 250 years one of the great political parties had solemnly declared that it would assist Ulster in, resisting the Government.

This statement was greeted with, cheers and cries of " Shame !"

Mr Bonar Law retorted that he was going to speak frankly. It was tho duty of Unionists inside and'outside of Parliament to make it impossible for Ihe Government to commit so great a. crime.

Mr O'Brien said the exclusion of Ulster was tho one amendment which could not be made.

Mr Falle's motion demanding production of the Government's proposals was rejected by 3il votes to 238.
