§ Lord BALCARRES
I beg to move "That Mr. Speaker do issue a warrant to the Clerk of the Crown to make out a New Writ for the electing of a Member to serve in this present Parliament for the County of Somerset, Western or Wellington Division, in the room of the right hon. Sir Alexander Acland-Hood, who has accepted the office of Steward of the Chiltern Hundreds."
§ Mr. SPEAKER
The hon. Gentleman can put a question down to the First Lord. I believe the office is held until a successor is appointed.
§ Mr. JAMES HOPE
Do you know, Sir, whether there are more than one Steward of the Chiltern Hundreds?
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ For county of Wicklow (East Wicklow Division) in the room of John Muldoon, Esquire (Chiltern Hundreds).—[Mr. Patrick O'Brien.]
