HC Deb 31 May 1850 vol 111 cc593-8

Resolutions reported.


objected to the new grant of 18,093l. for the college of May-nooth, and moved the reduction of l,241l. for the purpose of making the vote 16,852l;.

Amendment proposed, to leave out "18,093l.," and to insert "16,852l.," instead thereof.

Question put, "That 18,093l.' stand part of the resolution."


understood that the 30,000l. which had been voted was likely to be very far exceeded, and would amount to 50,000l., and that the intention was to get the amount of the sum by dribblets year after year. This sum was proposed to be added as one of these dribblets. He did not understand why 30,000l. was not enough for the vote for repairs for the old college.


said, that an explanation of this vote had been given every year. He had no reason to expect that any question would have arisen on the subject, or he should not have brought it forward at that late hour of the night.

The House divided:—Ayes 68; Noes 55; Majority 13.

said, that he and several hon. Members who had intended to vote against the grant to May-nooth were prevented from doing so in consequence of the wire of the bell attached to the room in which they were waiting being broken, and their not being aware that the division was about to take place. He wished, therefore, to ask the right hon. Gentlemen in the chair whether the votes of those hon. Members ought not to be allowed?


said, the hon. Members ought to have been in the House at the time of the division.

Resolutions agreed to.

The House adjourned at Two o'clock till Monday nest.
