HL Deb 02 June 1837 vol 38 cc1158-9
Lord Denman

gave notice, that he should feel it his duty on Tuesday next to draw the attention of the House to certain resolutions, touching the privileges of Parliament, which had been agreed to in another place.

Lord Ellenborough

would humbly suggest to the noble and learned Lord to consider maturely the expediency of bringing forward the subject of which he had given notice. He (Lord Ellenborough) confessed that he saw great difficulty and inconvenience in their Lordships adverting to those resolutions of the House of Commons, which need not be brought before their Lordships for the purpose of their giving an opinion on them.

Lord Denman

assured the noble Lord that he had given the most mature deliberation to the matter, and, filling the situation which he had the honour to hold, he thought he should be deserting his duty, both as one of his Majesty's judges and as a peer of Parliament, if he did not bring this matter under their Lordships' consideration.
