HC Deb 23 March 1847 vol 91 c325

, in moving for leave to bring in a Bill for the hotter administration of charitable trusts for the benefit of Her Majesty's Roman Catholic subjects, stated that he would take the discussion of the measure on its second reading.


considered the subject of the Bill of great importance; and if the hon. and learned Gentleman had consulted and obtained the sanction of the Catholic clergy of England to bring in a Bill which would materially affect their jurisdiction, he (Mr. J. O'Connell) would give it his most earnest support; but if the consent of those right rev. gentlemen had not been obtained, then he hoped a distant day would be fixed for the second reading, in order that they might be consulted.

Leave given.
