HC Deb 29 April 1873 vol 215 c1190

moved the following resolution:— That when the House after a Morning Sitting resumes its Sitting at Nine o'clock, and it appears on Notice being taken that Forty Members are not present, the House shall suspend Debates and proceedings until a quarter past Nine, and Mr. Speaker shall then count the House, and if Forty Members are not then present, the House shall stand adjourned. He regretted that the Rule of the House, which would not allow Opposed Business to be proceeded with after half-past 12 o'clock, precluded his bringing forward other Resolutions which he had also placed upon the Paper.

Resolution agreed to.
