§ MR. ALDERMAN COPELAND
said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If it is the intention of the Government to appoint a Select Committee to inquire into the state of the Ecclesiastical Commission and the management of the Estates now vested in the Commission?
§ SIR GEORGE GREY
said, that when last Session the hon. Gentleman had brought under the notice of the House a certain branch of expenditure with reference to the Ecclesiastical Commission, In said he (Sir George Grey) thought the subject might be fit for the inquiry of a Committee. The hon. Member for Pooh (Mr. H. Seymour) had given notice of his intention to move for a Committee on the general question, and if the House should agree to that Motion, this subject would come within the scope of the inquiry of that Committee.
