HC Deb 06 July 1842 vol 64 cc1085-8

On the motion that the re- port on the resolutions on the South Australian Acts be brought up,

Mr. Hume

opposed the motion. The resolutions involved an expenditure of 400,000l. of public money, and had been too hurriedly passed through the previous stage.

Sir R. Peel

suggested that the sense of the House should be taken on the bringing up of the report. The discussion might be taken at a future stage.

The House divided:—Ayes 50; Noes 9: Majority 41.

List of the NOES.
Brotherton, J. Pechell, Capt.
Cobden, R. Wallace, R.
Duncombe, T. Wawn, J. T.
O'Brien, J. TELLERS.
O'Connell, D. Hume, J.
O'Connell, J. Wood, B.

Report brought up.

House adjourned at a quarter before two.
