'The Liberals contend thai during the election of 1910 the country was iiware that a majority given them would be used for the passing of a Home Rule Bill. -.With this side of the controversy we arc noj immediately concerned. In view of the present stage of events il is only a matter of interest to gel a clear understand- ing as to the sequence of events connected with the Home Ruie measure which hassled.to the present impasse. The third Home Rule: Bill, as it is called, was introduced and passed twice by the House of Commons, and rejected hvice hy the House of Lords. Under the provisions of the 1'nrliument Act a Bill passed thrice by the House of Commons may receive the Royal Assent in spile of ily rejection -by-Ihc. House of Lords.
