§ MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether it is the intention of the Government to move Mr. Speaker out of the Chair immediately after the Address has been voted; and, if not, whether they will give notice beforehand of their intention to do so?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. E. GLADSTONE,) Edinburgh, Midlothian
It is not the intention, nor would it be in accordance with the usual precedent, to move the Speaker out of the Chair at the close of the Debate on the Address, The prac- 1052 tice is to give previous notice of setting up Supply, in order that hon. Members may give notice of any Motions which they may desire to bring forward; and to move the Speaker out of the Chair notice must be given.
