§ THE LORD PRIVY SEAL (Earl CADOGAN)
My Lords, the Committee which the House appointed a few days ago to examine into the Standing Orders of the House which relate to Standing Committees, have considered the subject, and have embodied their conclusions in a Report which I now have the honour to lay upon the Table. That Report will be circulated, and in it will be found the full text of the new Standing Orders, which the Committee recommend should be adopted by your Lordships. I think it will be for the convenience of the House that a week should be given in order to consider these proposals, and I therefore beg to give notice that this day week I shall move the adoption of the new Standing Orders in accordance with the recommendations of the Committee.
Report from the Select Committee (with the proceedings of the Committee and appendix) made, and to be printed; and to be taken into consideration on Tuesday next. (No. 26.)
