HC Deb 17 March 1846 vol 84 cc1125-6

As the right hon. Baronet (Sir J. Graham) had referred to the Bill for the Protection of Life in Ireland, he was anxious to hear from the right hon. Baronet, whether he had yet fixed a day for the first reading of that Bill? He must say, that if it was important that the Bill should pass at all, it was of all things important that it should pass without delay; and he could not help further observing, that the Government showed much less anxiety to afford protection to life and property in Ireland, than they did to remove protection from the native industry of all parts of the United Kingdom.


said, that it was his intention to make the first reading of the Bill the first Order of the Day after the second reading of the Corn Bill.
