My Lords, I beg to move the Amendment which stand in my name of Standing Order No. 47. The object of the Amendment is that the noble Lord, who is in charge of any Bill, should ex officio be a Member of the Standing Committee to which that Bill is referred.

Moved, that Standing Order No. XLVII. be amended as follows:

NOTE.—The words underlined are to be omitted, and the words printed in Italics are to be inserted.

The Standing Committees shall consist in all of not more than one hundred and fifty Lords, and each Committee shall not consist of less than fifteen Lords, to be nominated by the Committee of Selection, who The Lord in charge of a. Bill committed to a Standing Committee shall be a member of the Committee during the consideration of such Bill. The Committee of Selection shall have power to discharge Lords with their assent from time to time, and to appoint others in substitution for those discharged, and The Committee of Selection shall also have power to add not more than ten Lords to a Standing Committee, in respect of any Bill committed to a Standing' Committee, to serve on the Committee during the consideration of such Bill.—(The Earl of Morley.)

On question, agreed to.
