Were it not for the fact that a Private Legislation Reform
Bill for Wales, passed unanimously on the 25th March, 1904
its second reading in the House of Commons, and that not
a single Irish Member brought forward the case of Ireland or
claimed extension to this country of a similar measure, I
should have to apologise to the Society for bringing the
subject of Irish Private Bill Procedure Reform again
before it. There is no necessity to prove how much it
is wanted. Every one admits it is wanted. There is no
necessity to prove how much Ireland suffers under the
existing system. This will not bring about a reform.
It pays certain politicians to have a grievance, and as
the removal of the grievance would only be a hum-drum
piece of practical legislation it does not pay other politicians
to trouble themselves to remove it.
