§ SIR EDWARD STRACHEY, (Somerset, S.)
rose in his place, and asked leave to move the adjournment of the House for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent public importance, viz., "the appointment of a person not being a Member of this House to the office of President of the Board of Agriculture, leaving no official of that important Department as its representative in this House;" but the pleasure of the House not having been signified, Mr. Speaker called on those Members who supported the Motion to rise in their places, and not less than forty Members having accordingly risen,
§ MR. SPEAKER
On what does the hon. Member base his question? I know of nothing in the Standing Orders to prevent it.
§ MR. GALLOWAY (Manchester, S.W.)
I think the Order provides that no business other than Supply shall be taken.
§ The Motion stood over, under Standing Order No. 10, until the Evening Sitting, this day.
