HC Deb 10 September 1886 vol 309 c28
MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W., and Sligo, S.)

I wish to put a Question to you, Sir, before you leave the Chair. Last night, in Committee of Supply, my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Cork (Dr. Tanner) moved to report Progress, but afterwards asked leave to withdraw the Motion. The Motion, thereupon, was withdrawn; but in the Votes printed today I find that it is stated that the Motion was negatived.


I have no cognizance of what takes place in Committee of Supply. I am only cognizant of those matters which take place when I am in the Chair.


All I wish to ask you, Sir, is whether, if my representation of the vote is correct, it will not be proper to correct the entry in the Votes?


The hon. Member had better make a representation to the Chairman of Committees. I have no doubt that if any mistake has been committed, it will at once be rectified.
