HC Deb 10 May 1882 vol 269 cc381-2

Sir, in the absence and on behalf of my right hon. Friend the First Lord of the Treasury, I beg to move that the House at its rising this day do adjourn until 9 o'clock to-morrow evening. I believe, Sir, that this proposal will be in consonance with the feelings of Members of this House, as it is made in order that an opportunity may be afforded to them of attending the funeral of Lord Frederick Cavendish. I regret that I have not been able to give a longer Notice of this Motion; but the fact is the arrangements were not completed until after the rising of the House last evening. It was therefore out of my power, or the power of my right hon. Friend the First Lord of the Treasury, to give longer Notice of this. I trust that the Motion will meet with the acceptance of the House.


I am quite sure that the noble Lord has only spoken the feeling of every Member of the House; and in the absence of my right hon. Friend (Sir Stafford Northcote) I readily second the Motion, in order that we may show our deep sense of the severe loss we have sustained.

Motion made, and Question, "That this House, at its rising this day, do adjourn till To-morrow, at Nine o'clock in the Evening,"—(Lord Richard Grosvenor,)—put, and agreed to.
