HC Deb 10 March 1896 vol 38 c660

On the Motion for the adjournment of the House,

MR. BYRON REED (Bradford, E.)

addressing the Speaker, said: I wish, Sir, to ask you a question as to your ruling—to which I submit with all respect—in regard to the Division which has just taken place——


Order, order! The hon. Member is too late for that. If he had any question of Order he should have raised it at once. ["Hear, hear!"] I explained why I ruled as I did at the time. ["Hear, hear!"]


(who was received with cries of ["Order!" and "Name!"]: I am speaking now strictly to the Motion for Adjournment; and I wish to ask hon. Gentlemen within my own hearing whether they understood that there was no negative response when the Resolution was put. [Cries of "Order!"]


The hon. Gentleman is entirely out of order in appealing to the House as to whether what I said was correct or not. [Cheers.]

House adjourned at Twenty minutes after Twelve o'clock.
