HC Deb 21 July 1863 vol 172 c1163

said, he wished to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether the Government is prepared, in deference to wishes expressed by so many Irish Members, to defer for the present the amalgamation of the Irish Industrial Museums with the Royal Dublin Society?


stated, in reply, that in consequence of what appeared to be the general feeling of Irish Members, the amalgamation of the Irish Industrial Museum with the Royal Dublin Society would not be carried into effect before the next Session. But although nothing had at present been done with regard to the amalgamation, the matter was not abandoned, but would be further considered.
