§ SIR THOMAS ESMONDE (Wexford, N.)
rose to move "That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty, praying His Majesty to assent to the establishment of an Irish Record Commission and an Irish Historical Manuscripts Commission, for the better and more speedy publication of the Ancient Manuscripts and Records relating to Ireland."
§ *MR. SPEAKER
This is not a proceeding under a statute. On what ground does the hon. Baronet claim to move what I assume is an opposed Motion?
§ SIR THOMAS ESMONDE
said he thought that this was the only manner in which he could raise the question.
§ Adjourned at twenty-five minutes after Twelve o'clock.
