§ MR. WILLIAM JOHNSTON (Belfast, S.)
I beg to ask Mr. Solicitor General whether his attention has been called to an outdoor procession at Hatton Garden on Sunday the 16th July, in honour of the "Feast of our Lady of Mount Carmel," when various Roman Catholic clergymen walked in the procession; whether, in view of the provisions of 10 George IV., Chapter 7, Section 26, which imposes a penalty on Roman Catholic ecclesiastics who take part in such processions, and also of the proclamation against Roman Catholic processions issued on the 15th of June, in the 15th year of the reign of the Queen, Her Majesty will be advised to renew such proclamation in maintenance of the law.
§ THE SOLICITOR-GENERAL (Sir R. B. FINLAY,) Inverness Burghs
The only information I have with regard to this matter is a newspaper report to which my hon. friend has called my attention. It is not proposed to renew the proclamation.
