HC Deb 03 February 1832 vol 9 cc1232-3
Mr. French

presented a Petition from Roscommon, in favour of Reform of Corporate Bodies, and of giving Ireland an additional number of Representatives.

Mr. O'Connor

supported the prayer of the petition, which he knew to be agreeable to the feelings of the great body of the people of Ireland. He hoped, therefore, that the details of the Irish Bill would be reconsidered, and Ireland receive a greater share of benefits than was now promised her by the Bill.

Mr. James Grattan

was of opinion, that the Irish Bill was not extensive enough, and he thought the benefits of the English Bill, as far as regarded the machinery, with a greater number of Members ought to be extended to Ireland.

Petition to be printed.
