Proposed resolutions - temporary measures.
This undated broadside has four sections and puts forward thirteen resolutions that the authors believe the British government ought to pass into law - "...the present system having signally failed - to call upon the Government in the most imperative terms to take such measures as will secure local supplies of food sufficent to keep the people alive and to sacrifice any quantity of money that may be necessary to attain that object, declaring as we do, that any neglect or delay in that matter will render the Government responsible for the safety of the people of Ireland, who must perish in multitudes, unless supplied with food. That as the people of this country are suffering from a most extraordinary and incalculably extensive deficiency in the stock of food, we call further on the Government to remove all artificial impediments to the supply of the deficiency, by the temporary suspension of the navigation laws and the duties on the importation of corn and also to give increased facilities to that importation by permitting such vessels of Her Majesty's navy as can be spared, to be employed in the transport of provisions".
