HC Deb 17 August 1843 vol 71 c911
Mr. Ward

said, in the debate on the Irish Church, on the first of this month, he had made a statement from Parliamentary returns as to the actual revenue of the Established Church in Ireland, from which the statement made in answer by the noble Lord, the Secretary for Ireland, differed by a sum of 120,000l. He believed, that since then circumstances had come to the knowledge of the noble Lord and the right hon. Gentleman, which induced them to think that, without any fault on the part of the commissioners in Dublin, the return made by them to the House, upon which the statement of the noble Lord was founded, was erroneous. As it was desirable that on so important a subject there should be no misapprehension, he begged to move for a return of the actual amount of the revenues of the Protestant establishment in Ireland, whether arising from episcopal lands, tithes, rent-charge, or any other source from which its emoluments were derived?

Sir J. Graham

had no objection to the return in that shape.

Return ordered.
