§ Order for naming the Select Committee, under Standing Order No. 175 having been read,
§ LORD KINNAIRD moved that the order be discharged, stating at the same time that it was his intention to-morrow to move that the petition of the Coalwhippers be referred to a Select Committee.
§ LORD RAVENSWORTH
said, that since the noble Lord purposed not to proceed with his original Motion he should not object, after the decision at which the House had arrived a few evenings before, to have the petition in question referred to a Select Committee. He should, on the contrary, do everything in his power to facilitate the inquiry before that Committee, and should be prepared to show that the evils of which the noble Lord complained could be obviated by means much less objectionable than those which he had provided in his Bill.
§ The order was then discharged.
