HC Deb 14 June 1866 vol 184 c382

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is his intention to propose an Address for a Commission in the case of the borough of Galway?


said, in reply, that the Chairman of the Galway Committee (Mr. Hussey Vivian) had intimated his intention of moving for a Commission; but as the proposition laid before the House by that hon. Gentleman with regard to corrupt practices at elections generally had not been adopted, he presumed he (Mr. Hussey Vivian) was of opinion that a Commission in the Galway case would not be attended with any good result. If, however, the other members of the Committee did not share in that opinion, the Motion for a Committee ought to come from some one of them, and if it was made he had no doubt that it would be agreed to.
