HL Deb 23 February 1932 vol 83 c652

My Lords, I think it is the invariable custom—at least it is stated, not in the Standing Orders, but in the Companion to the Standing Orders—that the Lord Privy Seal as a member of your Lordships' House should be a member of the House of Lords Offices Committee. When the Committee was set up the noble Viscount, Lord Snowden, was not a member of your Lordships' House. The noble Viscount has since become one and I think, in accordance with usual practice, his name should be added to the list of those of your Lordships who serve on the House of Lords Offices Committee. It so happens that there is a meeting of that Committee to-morrow and I therefore hope your Lordships will agree to the Motion to add Viscount Snowden to the Committee so that, if possible, he may attend to-morrow afternoon. I beg to move.

Moved, That the Lord Privy Seal be added to the Select Committee on House of Lords Offices.—(The Earl of Onslow.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.

House adjourned at twenty-five minutes past four o'clock
