HC Deb 20 February 1871 vol 204 cc490-1

said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, having regard to the desire generally expressed in Ireland that there should be a Royal residence in that Country, Her Majesty's Government will propose to Parliament this Session a grant to purchase such suitable residence?


That, Sir, is a question which has been for some time in the view of Her Majesty's Government; but I am not in a condition, at the present moment, to make a positive announcement respecting it to my hon. Friend.
