HC Deb 11 May 1858 vol 150 c496

LORD ROBERT CECIL moved "That all Committees of this House stand adjourned over Thursday next, being Ascension Day."


suggested that the better course would be to order that the Committees should not meet before Two o'clock on that day.


said, that great inconvenience and expense would be caused by the Committees sitting for only half a day, and he therefore objected both to the Motion of the noble Lord and to the Amendment suggested by the right hon. Gentleman.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.

House adjourned at a quarter before One o'clock.
