HL Deb 19 March 1866 vol 182 c485

said, that to-morrow having been named by the Bishop of London as a day of fasting and humiliation on account of the Cattle Plague, the Committees in the Commons would not meet until one o'clock. He bogged to propose that their Lordships' Committees should not meet until half past one o'clock.


said, the judicial business of the House would go on at the usual hour. But it would be proper that the proceedings of the two Houses of Parliament should coincide as nearly as possible in the business of legislation, and, therefore, half past one would be a very suitable hour for the Committees of that House to meet.

Motion agreed to.
