HC Deb 04 July 1860 vol 159 cc1345-6

said, he wished to give notice that he should move as an addition to the Resolutions of which the noble Lord the Member for Tiverton (Viscount Palmerston) had given notice for the next day:— That an humble address be presented to Her Majesty, praying Her Majesty to be graciously pleased not to prorogue the present Parliament until the Bill passed by this House for the abolition of the Excise duty on paper has been submitted to Her Majesty for the Royal Assent. He also wished to ask the right hon. Gentleman the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether it was the intention of the noble Lord to move the Resolutions of which he had given notice seriatim, and to take the sense of the House on each, or to propose them all together?


said, he apprehended that the question was one rather for Mr. Speaker to decide. He, himself, was of opinion that when Resolutions were put in the form in which these Resolutions were couched, it was the practice of the House that they should be proposed seriatim.
