HC Deb 22 February 1870 vol 199 cc693-4

said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, if the statement in the "Pall Mall Gazette" was true that Lord Cairns had had a personal interview with the noble Lord and presented a Memorial from Trinity College, Dublin, praying that all the offices might be thrown open to persons irrespective of their religious creed?


said, in reply, that a Memorial had been received from the Fellows and Scholars of Trinity College, Dublin, on the subject of throwing open offices in the University of Dublin to persons of all religious persuasions; but if his right hon. and gallant Friend wished to know what the contents of the Memorial were it would be better for him to move for it, and then the document itself might be laid before the House.
