HC Deb 06 August 1888 vol 329 cc1721-2
MR. DILLWYN (Swansea, Town)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, If he will afford facilities for bringing on a Motion for which Notice has been given, and now stands for Monday next, for moving for an Address to Her Majesty the Queen, praying Her to order the release of Mr. John Dillon and other Members of Parliament now imprisoned in Ireland? The hon. Gentleman stated that the Motion had originally been put down for last Thursday, and had been adjourned until that evening.

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

I am sure the hon. Gentleman will see that it is not in my power to offer the facilities he asks for.


I wish to express my regret at the answer of the right hon. Gentleman, in view of the great interest which the matter excites in England and Wales, and I shall take an early opportunity, if I possibly can, of bringing it before the House.
