Bonar Law, Prime Minister between 1922 and 1923, believed that Irish Home Rule should only be executed with the exclusion of Ulster (this was most probably influenced by his own family ties - his father was an Ulsterman from Scottish descent). By 1912 he worked closely with Edward Carson as both championed Ulster in the Home Rule debate. Irish Devolution was achieved by 1921.
