HL Deb 22 July 1887 vol 317 c1751

Moved, "That when any Lord who has a higher title or dignity than that by which he sits in Parliament shall be named in any official record of the Proceedings of the House, or of any Committee thereof, the higher title or dignity shall be added in brackets after the title by which such Lord sits in Parliament."—(The Earl of Minto.)


said, that the question had been already before the House, and he believed there was no objection to the Motion. But if the names were set out on the official record, it would be unnecessary that they should be repeated on every question, as that might be found inconvenient. With that qualification the Motion might be accepted.

Motion agreed to.

Ordered, "That the above Resolution be declared a Standing Order of the House (to come into operation at the commencement of the next Session of Parliament), and be numbered XXXIIA."

House adjourned at half-past Five o'clock, to Monday next, a quarter past Four o'clock.
