HC Deb 05 April 1842 vol 61 cc1294-5
Sir V. Blake

moved for leave to bring in a bill to alter the law in relation to the admission of barristers in Ireland. As the law now stands, persons who sought to be admitted to the Irish bar were compelled previously to spend a part of their terms in Eng- land. The object of this bill was to transfer such portion of the required time to the inns of Dublin.

Lord Eliot

did not rise to oppose the motion of the hon. Gentleman, but he wished to guard himself against the sup position that he, by adopting such a course, pledged himself to the principle or details of the measure. He would only say, that he had not had any representations made to him from Ireland on the subject, and therefore he must reserve his opinion for a future occasion.

Bill brought in, and read a first time.
