In the course of his speech, his Lordship referred at length to the address of Earl Granville, at Hanley, on the previous day, and to the pronounced intention of Government in regard to Ireland. Alluding to the proposed Land Bill, he said the Tories would oppose any measure which would lead to confiscation of the property of landlords, and he ridiculed the idea of creating a peasant proprietary in Ireland. Referring to Earl Granville’s announcement, that Government would introduce a Bill dealing with, the present disorder, and providing for the future happiness of Irishmen, his Lordship strongly urged the necessity of first repressing the existing anarchy before taking steps to remedy the grievances of the people.
