§ Moved, That the House do now adjourn.—(Viscount Hailsham.)
§ LORD PONSONBY OF SHULBREDE
My Lords, may I on this Motion express my thanks to the Leader of the House for the way that my suggestion with regard to a different method of putting down the suspension of Standing Order No. XXXIX has been so carefully considered by the officers of the House and by himself. I observed the last time the Notice was put on the Paper it was put down in a rather different form, which I think will now become the recognised form. I only want to express my thanks for what has been done.
§ VISCOUNT HAILSHAM
My Lords, we are indebted to the noble Lord, Lord Ponsonby, for raising the point. It is important in the business and procedure of this House that a uniform method should be adopted. One does not want to have two different ways of doing the same thing. Thanks to his calling attention to the matter, I had it investigated with the assistance of the officers of the House, and I think now we have been able to arrive at a satisfactory form for future use.
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
