asked the First Lord of the Treasury whether, having regard to the feeling of the country in favour of religious toleration, he proposes to legislate in the direction of modifying the terms of His Majesty's Declaration regarding the Roman Catholic faith?


also asked the right hon. Gentleman whether it is his intention to bring in a Bill this Session to amend the declaration of religious belief which the Sovereign is required by Statute to make on his accession to the Throne?
