§ CAPTAIN O'CONNELL
said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether Her Majesty's Government have taken, or intend to take, any steps to enable the people of Ireland to form Volunteer Corps in that country?
§ VISCOUNT PALMERSTON
There is no intention on the part of the Government to propose that Parliament shall alter the law bearing on volunteering in Ireland, and under the present law there is no power on the part of the Crown to frame regulations under which these corps ought to serve.
§ Motion agreed to.
