My Lords, I beg to make the Motion standing in the name of the noble Earl the Leader of the House. This saves the Motions standing in the names of the Duke of Sutherland and the Duke of Northumberland lower down on the Notice Paper. I take this opportunity also of informing your Lordships that on Monday next the Leader of the House will move that on the following Wednesday Government Bills shall have precedence over Notices of Motion.

Moved, That Standing Order No. XXI be suspended as respects the precedence of the Committee stage of the Ministry of Mines Bill this day, and that the notices standing in the name of the Duke of Sutherland and the Duke of Northumberland have precedence over that stage of the Bill.

(The Earl of Crawford)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
