HC Deb 14 March 1878 vol 238 c1298

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether, in view of the recently issued Report of the Irish Church Commissioners, he will give facilities for the discussion of the Bill to amend the Irish Church Act, or himself introduce a measure on the subject?


Sir, the statement made just now by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer will, I think, have prepared the hon. Gentleman for my Answer to the first part of his Question, which is that in the present condition of Public Business it is impossible to place a day at his disposal. With reference to the latter part of his Question, it is not my intention to introduce a measure upon the subject.
