Mr. Q. Dick
moved, agreeably to notice, that the petition of Sir Harcourt Lees, presented on the 21st of December, for the repeal of the Act of Abjuration, be printed.
Mr. C. W. Wynn
objected to the Motion. It was contrary, he understood, to the rule adopted by the House, and if the petitions of individuals were to be printed at the expense of the public—a course which he would never recommend—they would adopt that method of making their sentiments known to the world.
§ A division took place, when there appeared,—For the Motion 4; Against it 44—Majority 40.
