HL Deb 12 August 1831 vol 5 c1249

Lord Teynham moved for the names and residences of all the Magistrates who had been struck out of the Commission of the Peace in Ireland, during the last four years (causes specified).

Lord Plunkett

said, it was not his intention to resist the noble Lord's Motion, although he had some doubts as to its expediency. He understood the noble Lord's object was to question the propriety of one of the removals which had not been effected by him (Lord Plunkett), but by his learned predecessor (Sir A. Hart). He had inquired very fully into all the circumstances of that case, and they were of such a nature, that he could not recommend the reinstatement of the gentleman in question.

Return ordered.
