HL Deb 16 May 1806 vol 7 c226
Lord Grenville ,

adverting to the order for Monday, relative to the attendance of witnesses in the case of Mr. Justice Fox, observed that it was evidently impossible for the house to take that business into consideration on so early a day, and therefore he should merely move to discharge the order for Monday, and renew it for the 30th instant; which motion, he was authorised to say, had the consent of the noble marquis (Abercorn) with whom the business originated.

The Duke of Cumberland

said, he was also authorised by his noble friend to state, that he had. no objection to the present motion. He trusted, however, that in postponing the order, it would not be understood that it was to be deferred sine die.—After a few words in explanation from lord Grenville, the order was discharged, and fixed for the 30th instant.
