HC Deb 18 March 1891 vol 351 c1289

(12.27.) Motion made, and Question proposed, That Mr. Thomas Henry Bolton, Sir Algernon Borthwick, Mr. Bristowe, Mr. Lawson, and Mr. Murdoch, be Members of the Committee, and four Members to be added by the Committee of Selection."—(Mr. Ritchie.)

Question proposed, "That Mr. T. H. Bolton be a Member of the Committee."

*SIR J. LUBBOCK (London University)

These names appear now for the first time on the Paper, and we have had no time for considering them. I am very far from saying that any one of these Members are not well qualified to serve on a Committee of this kind; but it does not necessarily follow that they would compose a Committee that would be altogether satisfactory. Of course, my hon. Friend the Member for North St. Pancras (Mr. Lawson) will most ably represent the views of the London County Council on the subject; but I regret that we have had no opportunity of consulting our Colleagues as to the composition of a Committee in which the London County Council are so much interested.


My right hon. Friend must understand that the names which appear on the Paper do not complete the Committee. The Members proposed to serve on it have been selected after consultation between both sides of the House, and I think that the interests of London will be adequately represented. Four Members will be added by the Committee of Selection.

Question put, and agreed to.
