§ MR. PARNELL (Cork)
said, he wished to ask the hon. and learned Gentleman the Solicitor General for Ireland (Mr. Madden) whether the Crown will agree, on Wednesday next, to the application for the adjournment of the case of Mr. O'Kelly until the House adjourns for the Autumn Session? He thought, as there had been such long delay in taking proceedings against Mr. O'Kelly, that when application was made on his behalf next Wednesday, the Crown ought to be able to adjourn the proceedings to enable him to return to London, and take his part in the discussion on the Members of Parliament (Charges and Allegations) Bill.
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (MR. MADDEN) (Dublin
said, this Question had come upon him without any Notice. The House would, of course, see that, as the matter was not in his discretion, he could not now answer the Question of the hon. Member. All he could say was that the suggestion made by the hon. Gentleman should have fair attention at the hands of those whose duty it was to decide the matter.
§ THE LORD MAYOR OF DUBLIN (Mr. SEXTON) (Belfast, W.)
said, if the reply of the hon. and learned Solicitor General were not satisfactory, he should, on Wednesday, move the Adjournment of the House.
