HL Deb 30 August 1841 vol 59 cc474-5
The Lord Chancellor

considered it his duty to inform the House that a certain noble Lord (understood to be the Earl of Scarborough) after he had taken the oaths, had been guilty of a most curious omission. He had omitted to subscribe the roll of Parliament, and by so doing, having subsequently sat and voted, he had subjected himself to certain penalties. He proposed, therefore, to introduce a bill to indemnify the noble Lord from the consequences of the omission, and on Monday next he should move that the standing orders be suspended, in order to enable the bill to pass forthwith.

Bill read a first time.

House adjourned to the ensuing Monday.
