§ Order for Committee read.
§ Motion made and Question proposed— "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the chair."
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
reminded the hon. Baronet, that Gentlemen whose Motions had the precedence of his had given way for the discussion on the Reform Bill; and he was sure from the well-known courtesy of the hon. Baronet, that he would not stand between the House and this subject. If he allowed the debate to proceed, he should be happy on some future day, as he had already done, to afford him facilities for proceeding with his Bill.
§ SIR JOHN TRELAWNY
felt himself placed in some little difficulty. The question of Reform was rather of a speculative kind, and men of advanced opinions did not seem to agree very well with respect to it. He was anxious, therefore, that the House should make some progress in this question of church rates, which was a practical subject. He should also like to know what wore the opinions of the hon. Member for North Warwickshire (Mr. Newdegate), and the noble Lord the Member for Stamford (Lord R. Cecil), both of whom had Amendments to propose, which perhaps the House might be inclined to adopt. If both sides of the House insisted that he should give way, he would not persevere, on the understanding that the right hon. Gentleman would do his best to get him another day, but he would not give up his position at the request of one side of the House only.
§ LORD JOHN RUSSELL
hoped the hon. Baronet would not persevere with his Motion, on the understanding that the Chan- 531 cellor of the Exchequer would endeavour to find him another day.
§ LORD ROBERT CECIL
said, the hon. Member for North Warwickshire was not in the House, as he could not imagine that this question would be brought on to-night.
§ Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
§ Committee deferred till To-morrow.
