§ * MR. HOZIER (Lanarkshire, S.)
asked why the Motion for issuing a new Writ for the election of a Member for the County of Berwick in the room of Mr. Marjoribanks, who had not only succeeded to a Peerage but had also accepted office under the Crown, had been delayed?
§ * THE PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. T. E. ELLIS,) Merionethshire
explained that he had thought it usual to delay until the Writ of Summons to the Upper House should have been issued to Lord Tweedmouth. If, however, hon. Members wished that the Writ should be moved for tomorrow he was quite ready to take that course.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ House adjourned at twenty minutes before Five o'clock.
