The Marquis of Blandford
, in presenting a Petition, praying for a Reform in Parliament, as necessary to restore that House to the confidence of the people, moved 544 for Returns of the number of persons entitled to vote for each borough in Ireland, distinguishing the resident from the nonresident voters.
§ Mr. Benett
did not see why it should be more difficult to make it for Ireland than it had been for England and Wales, for for which such a return was moved last year.
§ Sir J. Newport
said, he thought there could be no difficulty, for the non-resident freemen were included, as well as the residents, in the poll-books, and they were not liable to any sudden change.
§ Motion agreed to.
