HC Deb 26 January 1860 vol 156 c179

said, he rose to move—"That in all cases where the Seat of any Member has been declared void by an Election Committee on the ground of bribery, no Motion for the issuing of a New Writ shall be made without two days' previous notice having been given in the Votes."


said, he would suggest that the present Motion and one which stood lower on the paper in the name of the right hon. Secretary of State for the Home Department, and required seven days' notice to be given before writs were moved for certain corrupt boroughs, should be combined together, and that seven days' notice should be necessary in all cases of that kind.

Motion agreed to.

Ordered accordingly.
