Provision For Emergency Meeting During Recess

My Lords, I beg to make the Motion which was read to your Lordships earlier this afternoon by the Leader of the House.

Moved, That the House on its adjournment to-day do adjourn to October 19, except that if it appears to the satisfaction of the Lord Chancellor that the public interest requires that the House should meet at any earlier time during such adjournment, the Lord Chancellor may give notice to the Peers that he is so satisfied, and thereupon the House shall meet at the time stated in such Notice and shall transact its business as if it had been duly adjourned to that time.— (The Earl of Crawford.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.

House adjourned at six o'clock until Tuesday, 19th October.
