HC Deb 04 March 1844 vol 73 c531
Mr. O'Connell

would put one or two questions to the right hon. Baronet at the head of Her Majesty's Government, to which he should be glad to receive an answer. The first was, whether it was in the contemplation of the Government to bring in any Bill in the course of the present Session to alter or amend the law respecting the management of Roman Catholic Charities in Ireland, and of property devised for the purposes of Roman Catholic worship in that country?

Sir R. Peel

entertained a confident and sanguine hope, that Government would be enabled to bring forward, in sufficient time to allow of its passing during the present Session, a Bill respecting the management of Roman Catholic Charities and property devised for Roman Catholic religious purposes in Ireland, with the view of carrying into effect the objects stated by Ministers in the recent debates.
