HL Deb 12 June 1835 vol 28 c710
Lord Brougham

said, that it was in the recollection of their Lordships that the debate upon his Resolutions relative to Education had been postponed to the present time. He now proposed that the consideration of these Resolutions should be resumed on Thursday next.—[Several noble Lords said that that day was the anniversary of the battle of Waterloo.]—Oh! he begged pardon; he would not let the schoolmaster come in competition with the hero on that day; and if all conquerors fought with as pure motives, and for purposes as much directed to public advantage—Qthe Duke of Wellington bowed]—there would be less necessity than at present for arraying the schoolmaster against them. The noble and learned Lord then appointed Tuesday week for the further consideration of these Resolutions, observing that as there were some Resolutions in the House of Commons which embraced a part of his plan, and but a small though an important part of it, he wished to bring it as early as possible before their Lordships.

The Lords ordered to be summoned for Tuesday week.
