§ Order for Committee read.
§ SIR THOMAS ACLAND moved that the Bill be referred to a Select Committee, and that, for this purpose, the present Order be discharged.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Order for Committee be discharged, and that the Bill be referred to a Select Committee."—(Sir Thomas Acland.)
§ MR. SPEAKER
According to the Orders of the House, the Bill stands for Committee. I understand the proposition of the hon. Baronet (Sir Thomas Acland) to be that the Bill be referred to a Select Committee. It is open to him to make that Motion, because it does not advance the Bill a stage. If the House thinks proper to refer the Bill to a Select Committee, it would on the Report of the Select Committee be re-committed.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Order discharged.
§ Bill referred to a Select Committee.
