§ Major-General SEELY
I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent public importance, namely, "the failure of His Majesty's Government to issue orders prohibiting the destruction of houses or buildings by the Crown forces in Ireland except where necessary on purely 1057 military grounds, and the urgent necessity for putting a stop to such actions as the burning of Tincurry House and other houses in the Galtee Valley which have no military advantage."
§ The pleasure of the House not having been signified, Mr. SPEAKER called on those Members who supported the Motion to rise in their places, and not fewer than forty Members having accordingly risen,
§ The Motion stood over, under Standing Order No. 10, until a quarter-past Eight this evening.
