HC Deb 06 November 1888 vol 330 c462
MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)

asked the Speaker, as a point of procedure, Whether on Friday, July 20, the hon. Member for Camborne was suspended from the service of the House; and, if so, what was the effect of the vote on the right of the hon. Member to enter the precincts of the House, Galleries, or Libraries? The hon. Gentleman added that he ought to apologize for his ignorance on the point; but he had endeavoured to obtain the information after the vote without success.


It is very unusual for an hon. Member to put a Question to the Chair in this manner. If the hon. Member will communicate privately with me, I will endeavour to give him all the information in my power.


gave Notice that on an early day he would move the following Resolution:— That the application of the Closure on the 19th of July last to the Motion, that the Bann Drainage Bill (which proposes to make a free grant of large sums of public money for the benefit of certain Irish landlords) be now read a second time, without any Debate having taken place thereupon, and the refusal by Mr. Speaker to permit an Amendment to such Motion standing in the name of the Member for Camborne to be moved, constituted a very gross abuse of the Rules of this House, which by Standing Order 25 require Mr. Speaker to use his discretion for the protection of the rights of the minority.
