HC Deb 18 May 1857 vol 145 cc478-9

nominated the Select Committee on Bleaching and Dyeing Works. Committee nominated—Mr. BUTT, Lord JOHN MANNERS, Viscount GODERICH, Mr. KIRK, Mr. BAXTER, Mr. MASSEY, Mr. FERGUS, Mr. CLARK, Mr. CHEETHAM, Lord NAAS, Mr. COBBETT, Mr. WISE, Mr. TURNER, Mr. A. ADDERLEY, and Mr. MOORE.

On Mr. ADDERLEY'S name being proposed,


said, he thought that the Irish interest was not fairly represented on the Committee, he should therefore move the omission of Mr. Adderley's name, with the view of substituting that of Mr. Davison.


wished to suggest to the House that the appointment of numerous Committees on important subjects during the present Session was not likely to lead to any beneficial result. He observed that there were on the papers for that evening Motions for appointing three very numerous Committees on subjects of considerable interest. It was very unlikely, considering the period at which the Session would close, the numerous Election Committees that would have to be appointed, and the quantity of private business to be transacted, that Members could give full and due attention to many other important subjects, and prepare reports which would be likely to be satisfactory. He ventured to throw out this suggestion for the consideration of the House. Motion made, and Question, "That Mr. ADDERLEY be one other Member of the said Committee," put, and negatived.


nominated one other Member of the said Committee:— Power to send for persons, papers, and records; Five to be the quorum.

House adjourned at half-after One o'clock.
