Then it was moved to resolve, "That it appears to this House, that in several Parts of Ireland an organized and systematic Opposition has been made to the Payment of Tithe, by which the Law has been rendered unavailing, and many of the Clergymen of the Established Church have been reduced to great pecuniary Distress."

Which being objected to;

The Question was put thereupon?

It was resolved in the Affirmative.
