HC Deb 18 February 1830 vol 22 cc644-5
Mr. O'Connell

in presenting a Petition from several parishes in Dublin against the Sub-letting Act, said, that the population of Ireland was not a demoralized population. On the contrary, it was the most moral population in Europe. He instanced the last Commission for the City and County of Dublin, when only eleven persons were tried for felony, and the last Quarter Session for the County of Dublin, when not one person was so tried.
