HC Deb 08 May 1838 vol 42 cc1027-8
Mr. Aglionby

wished to ask why it was, that no Member connected with Cumberland had been put upon the Church Leases Committee, of the nomination of which the noble Lord had given notice. There was a very large property held under the dean and chapter in that county, and yet every Member from Cumberland was excluded.

Mr. Rice

said, that if a Member for each county were placed upon every Committee, he apprehended they would far exceed the limits of convenience and utility. The right hon. Gentleman then postponed the nomination of the Committee until to-morrow, as was understood.
