HC Deb 28 July 1893 vol 15 cc747-8
MR. THEOBALD (Essex, Romford)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he could state to the House how many Grand Juries in Ireland at the recent Summer Assizes have passed resolutions against Home Rule?

MR. BODKIN (Roscommon, N.)

Before the right hon. Gentleman answers, may I ask if these Grand Juries are non-representative Bodies, which it was proposed by the present Leader of the Opposition to abolish by his Local Government (Ireland) Bill?


I do not think I need enter into the constitution of Grand Juries. Only one resolution such as that referred to by the hon. Member for Romford has been communicated to Her Majesty's Government.
