HC Deb 10 May 1893 vol 12 cc546-7
MR. SEXTON (Kerry, N.)

said, that in the Votes he found the following Notice:— Mr. Ross.—Mr. Davitt (Adjudication of Bankruptcy),—Copy of the record of any adjudication of bankruptcy against Mr. Michael Davitt, the hon. Member for the North-East Division of the County of Cork. (Thursday, May 11.) As there had been no intimation of bankruptcy against Mr. Davitt, and as the hon. Member for North-East Cork had ceased to be a Member of the House, having accepted the Chiltern Hundreds, he wished to know whether this Notice could remain on the Paper in this form?


That will be for the hon. Member, in whose name the Notice stands, to judge between now and the time when the Motion will be brought forward.


In the meantime, Sir, could you not direct the hon. Member to take the Notice off the Paper, seeing that Mr. Davitt is no longer a Member of the House.


Of course, if the Motion is opposed on the ground indicated by the hon. Gentleman, the House can take the matter into its own hands.
