§ *SIR C. DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean),
on a point of Order with reference to the Orders of the Day, said that what should have been the first Order of the Day—the Bill of the hon. Member for the Uxbridge Division of Middlesex—had disappeared from the Paper. Hearing on Monday that the hon. Member did not intend to go forward with the Bill, he asked the hon. Member whether he would move on Wednesday that the Order be discharged. He understood the hon. Gentleman to say he would. The Motion had been made the previous day (Tuesday) in the usual manner, and 268 he now asked whether the Motion was made by the request of the hon. Member?
§ *MR. SPEAKER
said, it was done at the express request of the hon. Member. The Motion was placed in the hands of the Clerk, and he put it in the ordinary way from the Chair.
