HC Deb 12 April 1859 vol 153 c1625

said, he rose to request the right hon. Baronet the Member for Marylebone, when he asked the question of which he had given notice respecting Captain Carnegie and the Board of Admiralty, to conclude his remarks with a Motion, so that other Members might have an opportunity of addressing the House if so disposed, and he (Sir John Pakington) might not be limited to a categorical answer.


said, he had intended to conclude with a Motion, so as to allow the right hon. Baronet to make any statement which he might think proper to the House; but on consulting with Mr. Speaker he found that it would be better to bring forward the subject on the Motion for the Second Reading of the Consolidated Fund Bill, which was the fourth Order of the Day, and would come on in the course of a few minutes.
