HL Deb 24 May 1805 vol 5 c72

The final decision upon the Irish appeal cause, Redington v Redington, was, after some observations from the lord chancellor upon the nature of the case, postponed till Monday.—The bills upon the table were forwarded in their respective stages, and several private bills were brought up from the commons, and were severally read first time.—The lord chancellor acquainted the house that he had received a letter from a noble peer (the earl of St. Vincent), respecting his attendance on a committee on the other house of parliament. This was read by the noble and learned lord, and the purport of it was that, were he permitted by the house, he did not entertain the slightest objection to attend the committee as required, or to having any part of his official conduct examined into. Lord Auckland loved that a message be sent to the commons, desiring to know the grounds and purposes for which they required the attendance of the earl of St. Vincent, upon to committee appointed to enquire, &c. which was ordered accordingly.
