HC Deb 18 March 1807 vol 9 c150
Lord Stopford

read at the bar the report of the Colchester election committee, declaring Robert Thornton, esq. duly elected, and that the petition, as far as the same relates to the said R. Thornton, was not frivolous or vexatious; and also that W. Tuffnell, esq. was duly elected, and that the petition, so far as relates to the said W. Tuffnell, did appear to the committee to be frivolous and vexatious.—Mr. Vansittart gave in at the bar a special report of the Shrewsbury committee, stating the absence of one of its members, and the cause assigned for such absence, namely, sudden indisposition. A medical gentleman attended, and proved at the bar the illness of Mr. Windham Quin, and the impossibility, in consequence thereof, of his attendance on the said committee. Leave was then given to the committee to adjourn till Saturday next.
