HC Deb 20 May 1819 vol 40 cc559-60

Lord Milton moved the order of the day for resuming the adjourned debate on the petition of Charles Pitt, relative to the late Camel-ford election. On the question that Mr. Pitt be ordered to attend the House,

Mr. Wynn

said, that on the fullest consideration which he could give to this subject, he was of opinion, that the House had not the power to accede to the prayer of the petition. But even if it had the power, this was not a case in which it would be expedient for the House to exercise it, as the petitioner ought to have come earlier.

The question was then put and negatived.
