HC Deb 16 April 1858 vol 149 c1225

said, he rose to move for a return of the number of Continuous Service Men who accepted their discharge and then crossed the quarterdeck and entered for five years.


said, he doubted if the Motion of the lion, and gallant Gentleman could be complied with, but if it was possible to be complied with, he should have no objection. He hoped that the hon. and gallant Gentleman would not press the Motion now, because it would be in the position of an Amendment to the Motion for the Speaker leaving the Chair. If the hon. and gallant Gentleman would withdraw the Motion, he would inquire how far it could be complied with, and it might be then brought on as an unopposed Motion.

Motion withdrawn.
