1910 election
1910 ELECTION
  • The results of the election meant that the Liberals under Asquith could not form a government of their own against the Conservatives and Unionists. What do you think this meant for Ireland?
the 3 rd home rule bill
THE 3RD HOME RULE BILL
  • The 1912 Home Rule Bill was similar to the 1886 & 1893 bills in that it reinforced strong links with Westminster but had some differences.
  • The bill proposed:
    • An all-Ireland assembly in Dublin, including Ulster.
    • An unelected Senate (40) and elected House of Commons (164).
    • 42 Irish MPs would attend Westminster.
    • The Lord Lieutenant would remain as the Crown’s representative in Ireland and had the power of veto.
    • Westminster would retain international and financial responsibility while Ireland had control over domestic issues.
    • The parliament would be prevented from making laws that favoured one religion.

REPUBLIC

  • Britain was a constitutional monarchy, which meant that the monarch shared power with an elected president. Ireland was part of this.
