§ LORD HENRY THYNNE
said, he rose to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether his attention has been called to a statement that the Federal Government of America are recruiting largely in Ireland; whether that statement is true; and, if so, whether Her Majesty's Government propose to take any steps to prevent such recruiting?
§ SIR ROBERT PEEL
said, in reply, that no reports had recently been received respecting the enlistment of recruits in Ireland for the Federal army. Indeed, although there had been rumours on the subject, there had been at no time any definite statements.
