Sir, I can add nothing stronger than this statement. · I could support it by alluding to particular cases of distress and inability. I am in particular in possession of one that I might state, but I am deterred from doing so by the lateness of the hour, and the wish of the House to come to a decision. I beg only to add, that if the various other taxes to which the citizens of Dublin are subject should be taken into consideration; the heavy local and city taxes that have of late so heavily pressed on them, and have attracted their attentive enquiry, it will be found that this case deserves, not only our consideration, but our indulgence: I therefore most cordially support the proposition for an enquiry; we ought to go into a committee; we ought to propose some regulations; the respect and love I bear my constituents would induce me to go much more at length on this question; but I could not add to the arguments that have been advanced; nor could I strengthen the statement that I have read; I beg therefore to say, that I most cordially support the motion of my honourable friend.

The House then divided : for the Motion 73, Against it 150; Majority against the repeal of the tax 77. Tellers for the Ayes, Mr. R. Shaw, and Mr. Knox.

Noes, Sir G. F. Hill, and Mr. Lushington,
