§ MR. WINGFIELD-DIGBY (Dorsetshire, N.)
I beg to ask the first Lord of the Treasury whether there is to be an alteration in the Coronation Oath; and if so, whether any alteration can take place without an Act of Parliament.
§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND (Clare, E.)
May I ask whether an Act could not be introduced to omit from the Coronation Oath the words which refer to the Roman Catholic religion as superstitious and idolatrous?
§ MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN (Kilkenny)
Would the right hon. Gentleman have any objection to having a copy of the terms of the Coronation Oath sent to the Irish Catholic soldiers now serving in South Africa?
