§ Sir H. Parnell
moved, that the sum of 351,360l. 5s. 1d. be granted to his Majesty, for defraying the charge of the Disembodied Militia of Great Britain and Ireland, for the year 1831.
§ Mr. Spring Rice
said, that of all the grants proposed, this was the least objectionable. It was not an estimate prepared by Government, but was taken on the Report of a Committee to which the several Estimates had been submitted.
§ Sir H. Hardinge
said, that if hon. Members had no objections to the detail, the objection, if any, to the principle, could be better made on bringing up the report.
§ Lord Althorp
said, the disturbed state of the country made it necessary to call out the Militia this year.
§ Vote agreed to—House resumed.
