HC Deb 09 March 1809 vol 13 c114
Lord Folkestone

moved, that the order of the day be read for calling over the house, which being done, he moved, that the house be called over to-morrow, as there was a probability that the business would not close to-night.

Mr. Beresford

said, if it did not, he thought it unnecessary to have the call of the house hanging over the heads of the members if not carried into execution. The Irish gentlemen were under the necessity of returning to the Assizes, and if the noble lord persisted, he must allude to the Union, the business of grand juries in Ireland, the state of the roads, and other particulars, which it would take him three hours to explain. The call was unnecessary, as it was evident gentlemen did not wish to shun their business.

Mr. Fuller

thought the call unnecessary, from the attendance in the house below and above stairs.

Mr. Gascoyne

wished to understand, if it was the intention of the noble lord that the Call was to stand for Monday next; if so, he would take the sense of the house.

Lord Folkestone

said, he had no such intention.—The motion was then put, and the house was ordered to be called over to-morrow.
