§ SIR ARTHUR OTWAY
said, he had to make a Motion in regard to this Bill which was almost of a formal character, and had been made on similar occasions in previous years. There was a matter coming before a Select Committee connected with the London, Brighton, and South Coast Railway; and, as he was formerly a Director of that Railway, he thought it better that the Bill should be adjudicated upon by some other person than himself. He had consulted the Chairman of the Standing Order Committee, who had been good enough to consent to take this particular Committee; and he, therefore, begged to move, as on previous occasions, under Standing Order No. 109—"That the Chairman of the Committee on Standing Orders be appointed Chairman of the Committee on the Bill."
§ Question put, and agreed to.137
§ Ordered, That the Chairman of the Committee on Standing Orders be appointed Chairman of the Committee on the Bill.
