said, that as the three Gentlemen who had given Notice of their intention to raise special questions on the Motion for going into Committee of Ways and Means had courteously given way, he would now move that the Speaker do now leave the Chair.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the Chair."—(Mr. Gladstone.)
§ LORD ELCHO
said, it had been his wish to call the attention of the House to the subject of beam trawl fishing—a question in which the right hon. Gentleman's constituents, as inhabitants of a maritime county, took a deep interest. He would, however, waive the matter for the present, after the representations which had been made to him. He understood, with respect to the next Order—the Hares and Rabbits Bill—that the Home Secretary would merely move the second reading of the Bill, and that the debate would be then adjourned.
§ MR. COOPE
expressed himself satisfied with the answer which the First Commissioner of Works had given the hon. Member for Marylebone (Mr. D. Grant) in respect of the new regulations to be introduced into the management of the National Gallery, and would withdraw the Motion of which he had given Notice.
§ MR. WARTON
said, he would postpone his Notice with respect to the Irish policy of Her Majesty's Government until another opportunity.
§ Motion, "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the Chair," agreed to.
