§ THE PATRONAGE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. THOMAS ELLIS, Merionethshire)
moved that the name of the Attorney General be added to the Select Committee on the Rules of the Road at Sea.
§ MR. T. E. ELLIS
thought that the Committee as proposed would be a fair representation of the House, but he was quite willing to consider whether a Member, as desired by the hon. Member, could be added, as it was still competent to appoint two more members to serve on the Committee.
§ MR. G. C. T. BARTLEY (Islington, S.)
thought it was hardly fair to alter the constitution of the Committee, in the absence of the hon. Member for King's Lynn (Mr. T. Gibson Bowles) and others, who had taken a great interest in the subject, and who had assented to the Committee as now constituted.
§ MR. J. HAVELOCK WILSON rose to address the House again, but,
§ Question put,
§ That Mr. Attorney General be a Member of the Committee.
§ Motion accordingly stood over.
§ House adjourned at Six o'clock.
