The Catholic Question

The following report is taken from the Edinburgh Review of December 1828; the Review reproduced reports from other newspapers.

From The Times

We rejoice to say again, what we made known some months ago, viz. that we have the very strongest reasons for attributing to the Duke of Wellington a fixed determination to introduce a bill for the relief of the Catholics, in the ensuing session. We announce this, and we stand to it as our firm conviction, founded on intelligence from a quarter alike incapable of being deceived itself, and of deceiving others. We have, farther, sufficient ground for believing, that an active negotiation is now in progress between the Duke of Wellington and Mr Peel, with a view to arrange whatever difference may have resulted from their opposite, or at least separate feelings, towards a question upon which the sentiments of the highest personage in the realm are now in accordance with those of his Minister.
