HC Deb 06 September 1841 vol 59 cc492-3

On the Order of the Day for the consideration of the Speech of the Lords Commisioners being read,

Sir G. Clerk

said, that in the absence of the responsible Ministers of the Crown, he should not think of making any motion on which any difference of opinion would be likely to rise, but it was necessary that the usual motion that a supply be granted to her Majesty should be made, before the public business could be proceeded with. He would, therefore, avail himself of the meeting of the House that day and tomorrow, to take steps which would facilitate the progress of business, when the responsible Ministers of the Crown should take their places. He would, therefore, move, that a supply be granted to her Majesty.

Motion agreed to; it was ordered that the committee on the Navy Pay Bill be taken on Wedneday, and the House adjourned.
