That, in view of the opinion expressed by the London Times, that "Nothing just now could exercise a more salutary influence," in Great Britain, " than an authoritative pronouncement by the overseas peoples upon the Irish question," and accepting that journal as interpreting correctly the feelings of an important section of the inhabitants of Great Britain and Ireland, the Senate desires to reaffirm, and does hereby re-affirm, the Address to His Majesty the late King, passed on the 23rd November, 1905, as follows : - " That, in accordance with the most treasured traditions of British Government and British justice, and for the cementing of the Empire into one harmonious whole, this Senate is of opinion that Home Huie should be granted to Ireland."
