§ The Duke of Wellington
laid (by command) on the Table copies of the correspondence between the late Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Commissioners of Woods and Forests, on a report of the architect of the new Houses of Parliament relating to their warming and ventilation, and also to rendering them fireproof. The noble Duke observed, that it was desirable that this report should be taken into consideration without delay, by committees of both Houses. He would propose a similar course to that adopted last year, when the subject was considered by the joint committees. He would therefore move, "That the Report be referred to a select committee."—Committee appointed.
