said, in reply, that he had resolved to change the terms of his Motion and to move an Address to the Queen for a Commission of Inquiry, instead of moving for a Select Committee. He understood there was to be a meeting of the Royal Commissioners on Tuesday next, 554 and he should, in some degree, be guided in the course he should pursue by the steps which might be taken by the Commissioners on that occasion.
