HL Deb 28 April 1856 vol 141 c1593

My noble and learned Friend (Lord Lyndhurst) has given notice of a resolution with respect to the occupation of a portion of Italy by the Austrian troops, and I take the liberty of asking him to postpone his Motion for the present. I need hardly say that I do so on public grounds alone, but if he consents, I think he will be more likely to promote those interests which he as well as myself has at heart.


After the appeal which my noble Friend has made to me, I will not proceed with the Motion upon which I have given notice at present. But I beg leave to add that I shall observe with considerable anxiety the course which is intended to be pursued to put an end to the intolerable grievances and misgovernment under which the people of Italy have been so long suffering.

House adjourned till to-morrow.
