§ MR. WALPOLE
asked the noble Lord at the head of the Government whether he intends to propose that the House shall adjourn over Tuesday next, the day on which Her Majesty's birthday is to be kept. It would also be convenient if the noble Lord would at the same time state what adjournment he proposes for the Whitsuntide recess.
§ VISCOUNT PALMERSTON
Sir, I intend to propose that the House shall, as usual, adjourn over the day on which Her Majesty's birthday is kept, and also over the following day, on which our Isthmian games are celebrated. With regard to Whitsuntide, I shall propose that we adjourn from Friday to the Thursday following. Thursday being a day on which the Motions of private Members are taken, I do not think it would be right to adjourn over that day; but I consider that it would be unnecessary to ask Members to come up on Wednesday for a morning sitting.
