HC Deb 27 June 1815 vol 31 c1007
The Chancellor of the Exchequer

presented the following Message from the Prince Regent: GEORGE P. R. The Prince Regent, in the name and on the behalf of his Majesty, considering that it may be of very great importance to provide for such emergencies as may arise, and relying on the experienced zeal and affection of the House of Commons, trusts that this House will enable him to take such measures as the exigency of affairs may require.

This Message was ordered to be taken into consideration to-morrow.

Sir M. W. Ridley

announced his intention of opposing the grant of any further sum of money, because he could see no reason to call for the additional provision, under existing circumstances. The hon. baronet was proceeding, when

The Speaker

called him to order, observing, that upon giving notice of a proceeding, it was not regular to enter into a statement of reasons.

Sir M. W. Ridley

said, that he did not desire to persevere, but he thought it his duty to take the earliest opportunity of objecting to any proposed addition to the burthens of the country.
