§ The Report of the Resolution for granting the sum of one million sterling for the Arrear of Tithes (Ireland) was brought up.
§ On the Motion that it be read,
§ Mr. Littleton
agreed, that the people of England ought not to be called upon to support the Irish clergy as a general rule; but the present money was granted under peculiar circumstances of distress on the part of that clergy; and, besides this, there was every prospect that the whole amount of the grant would be ultimately repaid into the Exchequer, and thus the country would suffer no loss.
§ Mr. Aglionby
strongly protested against the grant as most unjust, most impolitic, and most inexpedient. If the Irish clergy were so distressed as was described, let the over-fed portion of the clergy support their poorer brethren. The Irish Church Temporalities Bill had been in a great measure destroyed by the declaration that the Temporalities of the Church were to be dedicated solely to Ecclesiastical purposes; at any rate, let the support of these poor clergy be included in these Ecclesiastical purposes.
§ The House divided on the Question, that "The Report be read"—Ayes 34; Noes 15—Majority 19.
§ The Report was read; and a Bill according to the Resolution ordered to be brought in.
