§ VISCOUNT DUNCAN
said, he begged to ask the hon. Member for Gateshead whether he intended to bring on his Motion respecting the discontinuance of the Right of Search on going into Committee of Supply to-morrow?
§ MR. HUTT
said, it was his intention to submit his proposition for the consideration of the House on the Motion for going into Committee of Supply tomorrow. He was aware that the question involved in No. 4 of the supplies which was first to come on did not refer to the Slave Trade, but as the Committee would proceed from No. 4 to No. 5, being the one with which his Motion was connected, he would submit his question at once on going into Supply.
THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, he did not wish to interfere with any arrangement made by the hon. Gentleman; but if it would be equally convenient to him to bring his Motion on on Monday, it would greatly facilitate the progress of public business. His right hon. Friend the First Lord of the Admiralty, he was afraid, would be absent from the House to-morrow. Between the present time and Monday the Government were in anticipation of receiving some communication from the United States which might bear upon 1085 this question. Of course, he should not interfere with the hon. Gentleman bringing forward his question on Monday, if he should consent to postpone it to that time.
