§ On the Motion that the House at its rising adjourn till Monday next,
§ MR. BANKES
said, he wished to ask whether any arrangement had been made for securing to the Speaker for the time being the nomination or recommendation to the Crown of the officers of that House, more especially those who sat at the table?
§ VISCOUNT PALMERSTON
said, the Bill now in progress through the House gave the appointment of those officers to the Crown, according to an arrangement made some time ago. He should deem it to be his duty—and no doubt his successors would feel it to be their duty—to place the appointments so made on record, and to act under the advice of the Speaker with regard to them.
§ Motion, for adjournment agreed to.
