HC Deb 20 May 1867 vol 187 cc769-70

said, he would now beg to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether it is his intention to introduce any measure respecting the Court of Admiralty in Ireland during the present Session of Parliament; and, if not, whether he can promise that the subject will receive his early attention with a view to legislation next year?


We propose, Sir, to wait till we see what course Parliament is likely to take with regard to the Court of Admiralty in England. As soon as the House has come to a decision upon that point, we shall introduce a Bill for Ireland. I do not think it possible that time will permit the passing of the measure during the present Session; but by laying it on the table an opportunity will be afforded during the recess for the consideration of its provisions.
