HC Deb 26 February 1885 vol 294 c1395

gave Notice that, in the event of the regular Motion for going into Committee of Supply being made to-morrow, he would move an Amendment expressing regret at the action taken by the Speaker during the Sitting of the House on Tuesday—first, in directing Mr. William Redmond to discontinue his speech under the Standing Order on continued irrelevance and tedious repetition; secondly, in informing the House that the Motion of the Prime Minister had been adequately discussed, and that it was the evident sense of the House that the Question should then be put; and, thirdly, in Naming Mr. O'Brien on the ground of disorderly interruption; and setting forth that these acts of the Speaker constituted an excessive application of the several powers vested in him by the three respective Standing Orders.
