§ Select Committee on School Board Elections (Voting) to consist of Twenty-three Members:—Mr. JOHN MORLEY and Mr. GORST added to the Committee.—(Mr. Dillwyn.)
§ MR. SEXTON
This is a most objectionable and surprising Motion. The right hon. Gentleman in charge of the matter is not here, and he is perfectly aware that the subject is one of contention and of difference of opinion in the House. I respectfully ask the noble Lord whether it is necessary to go on with the matter now?
§ LORD RICHARD GROSVENOR
The hon. Member made no objection, otherwise I should not have proposed to 607 go on with the Motion. The Motion is merely a formal one.
§ MR. WARTON
thought the Motion was in rather a peculiar form. There was nothing to show from the Notice given that the Committee was now composed of 21 Members. They could only guess or assume that it was.
