HC Deb 16 September 1841 vol 59 c518
Lord J. Russell

inquired at what hour to-morrow it was the intention of the right hon. Baronet to commence the public business of the House?

Sir R. Peel

said, that he thought it would be convenient to the House if it was generally understood that in future public business should commence at an earlier hour. He would propose, therefore, that petitions should continue to be presented till five o'clock, but that if there were no petitions they should commence public business at half-past four.
