MR. ASSHETON CROSS
asked the hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Marylebone, Whether he would postpone his Motion on the Paper for that evening, and allow the House to go on with the Scotch Patronage Bill?
§ SIR THOMAS CHAMBERS
said, that although the question he had placed upon the Paper was one in which many hon. Members took the greatest possible interest, he could not resist the appeal of the Government, and he should therefore withdraw his Motion in favour of the Church Patronage (Scotland) Bill.
And it being now five minutes to Seven of the clock, House suspended its sitting.
§ House resumed its sitting at Nine of the clock.
