490 VICTORIE 1886.



MEaM.-According to the Usage of Parliament, when the House appoints a Select Com-
mittee, the Lords appointed to serve upon it are named in the Order of their Rank,
beginning with the Highest; and so, when the House sends a Committee to a Confer-
ence with the Commons, the Lord highest in Rank is called first, and the rest go
forth in like Order: But when the Whole House is called over for any Purpose
within the House, or for the Purpose of proceeding forth to Westminster Hall, or upon
any public Solemnity, the Call begins invariably with the Junior Baron.

HOUSE OF COMMONS,

Tuesday, 12t1, January, 1886.

The House met at Two of the clock;
and, it being the first day of the meet-
ing of this Parliament, pursuant to
Proclamation, the Right honourable Sir
Thomas Erskine May, K.O.B., Clerk of
the House of Commons, and Reginald
Francis Douce Palgrave, and Archibald
John Scott Milnan, esquires, Clerks
Assistant, attending in the House, and
the other Clerks attending, according
to their duty, lIenneth Augustus Muir
Mackenzie, esquire, Clerk of the Crown
in Chancery in Great Britain, delivered
to the said Sir Thomas _Erskine May a
Book, containing a List of the Names
of the Members returned to serve in
this Parliament.
Several of the Members repaired to
their Seats.
A Message was delivered by Admiral
Ilon. Sir James Drummond, G.C.n., Gen-
tleman Usher of the Black Rod:
Gentlemen,
"The Lords, authorized by virtue of
Her Majesty's Commission to open this
Parliament, desire the immediate attend-
ance of this Honourable House in the
House of Peers, to hear the Commis-
sion road."
Accordingly, the House went up to
the House of Peers;-And a Commission
having been read for opening and hold-
ing the Parliament, the Lords Commis-
sioners directed the House to proceed
to the Election of a Speaker, and pre-
sent him To-morrow, at Two of the
co!ck, in the House of Peers for the
Royal Approbation.
And the House being returned;-
ELECTION OF A SPEAKER.
Smn JOHN R. MOWBRAY, address-
ing himself to the Clerk), who, standing
up, pointed to him, and then sat down)-
Sir Thomas Erskine May, in obedience
to the gracious communication from Her
Majesty, which we have just listened to
in another place," it now becomes the
first duty of the House of Commons, as
it is its ancient and undoubted Privilege,
to proceed to the Election of a Speaker.


I feel it, Sir Erskino May, to be a high
honour and a great gratification that I
have been requested on this occasion to
propose as a candidate the name of my
right hon. Friend the Member for War-
wick and Leamington (Mr. Arthur Peel),
with the confident assurance that that
name will be received with cordial ap-
proval, and will meet with universal
assent. Two years ago the House of
Commons sustained a serious and a
signal loss by the retirement of so able
and experienced a Speaker as Sir Henry
Brand; and I do not think I shall be
guilty of exaggeration if I say that at
no period of our history, and under no
circumstances, was the choice of a fit
person to fill that Chair a matter of
greater public interest and concern than
it then was. The heated debates of
1881, the intervention of the Speaker,
the extraordinary powers subsequently
conferred upon Sir Henry Brand, the
prolonged controversy over the New
Rules in 1882, all were fresh in the
recollection of the House. I believe the
question we all anxiously asked was-
who among the Members of the House
could be found capable of sustaining
the unremitting toil, of bearing the
heavy burden, and the immense respon-
sibility of so arduous a post ? I think
I may say that it was a matter of uni-
versal congratulation when the choice
of those who were concerned in the
original selection and nomination of
a fit person to fill the Chair fell upon
Mr. Arthur Peel. The son of a great
Commoner, of a great Prime Mi-
nister, and a great Leader of this
House, bearing the name of England's
most illustrious hero Mr. Arthur
Wellesley Peel seemed to have double
claim upon the confidence of this House
and upon the respect and affection of
the British nation. But he had other
claims, and stronger claims-personal
and individual claims-which recom-
mended him to the notice of the House
of Commons, and which were his real
recommendation for the high post for
which he was selected. He was known
for his high and independent character,
for his spotless integrity, for his un-
varying courtesy. [Loud cheers. Mr.
BIaaAu: No, no! ] He was known to
have had experience of official life; he
was known to be thoroughly conver-
sant with all the work of the House
of Commons. His name was received

7 Election of


with acclamation. Ho was proposed
by my hon. Friend the Member foi
Bedford (Mr. Whitbread), in a speech
which still lingers in our memories. HIIi
Proposer, on that occasion, in forcible,
dignified, and eloquent language, enun-
ciated those Constitutional doctrines
which should guide the House of Com-
mons in the selection of a Speaker,
and then proceeded to make special
application of them to Mr. Peel,
grounded on long and intimate know-
ledge of his personal character. Mr.
Peel was called to the Chair by the
unanimous voice of the House. And we
were at once assured of the wisdom of
our choice, for as soon as he was elected
the Speaker Elect, standing on those
steps, before he proceeded to take
his seat in the Chair, addressed the
House in words so striking, so weighty,
so dignified, and so becoming his high
station, that I believe we felt, every one
of us, that he had raised by that address
the moral tone of the whole House. We
were satisfied that we had found in Mr.
Peel a worthy Successor of the most dis-
tinguished men who had preceded him
in the Chair. It is not for me, on this
occasion, to review his conduct in the
Chair. I feel myself precluded, in his
presence, from saying that which I should
like to say both in a personal and public
capacity. The whole House is, I be-
lieve, perfectly conscious of the high opi-
nion entertained of Mr. Peel; but this
much I may say-and no one will, I be-
lieve, deny it-that he has fulfilled, to the
utmost, all the anticipations of his most
sanguine supporters. He has conducted
himself in the Chair with dignity. He
has presided over our deliberations with
ability and impartiality. He has ex-
hibited clear apprehension, ready deci-
sion, sound judgment, self-possession,
and resolution. He has proved himself.
well acquainted with the Rules and Or-
ders of the House. He has shown him-
self capable of protecting all our Privi-
leges. He has discharged, in an ad-
mirable manner, other duties, not less
arduous, not less important, though less
conspicuous. He has watched carefully
over the course of our Private Business.
He has been kind, courteous, and acces-
sible to every individual who has ever
sought his advice. He has enjoyed and
retained the confidence of the House of
Common-- a confidence which I boldly
say neither rank, nor attainments, nor

I inheritance of proud name, nor personal
Prestige, without high personal charac-
I ter, can ever command or insure. I pro-
Spose, therefore, to this new House of
Commons, composed to so large an ex-
Stent of new Members, representing so
i many new constituencies, an old, an
honoured Speaker, tried and approved by
the last House of Commons. I propose
him in accordance with all the best pre-
cedents which are to be found recorded
in our Journals during the last two
centuries-the best period of our Parlia-
mentary history. I propose him espe-
cially in accordance with the precedents
which regulated the re-election of Mr.
Manners Sutton in 1833, of Mr. Shaw
Lefovre in 1841, and of Mr. Brand in
1874. I cite these precedents becauseI
think they prove the usage of continuity
in the Chair, and the importance which
the House has always attached to that
continuity. Such continuity -has long
been recognized as adding weight and
authority to the Speaker for the time
being. But, besides and beyond this, I
emphatically propose Mr. Peel on his
own merits; because I feel assured that
the House at largo is well convinced that
there is not at the present moment,
within these walls, any other man so
pre-eminently qualified to guide and
direct our deliberations, to maintain our
Privileges, and to hand down unsullied
to remote posterity all those lofty tradi-
tions which have ever appertained to the
unique position of Speaker of the House
of Commons. Ibegnow, SirErskineMay,
to move-" That the Right honourable
Arthur Wellesley Peel do take the Chair
of this House as Speaker."
Mn. JOHN BRIGHT: Sir Erskino
May, I rise for the purpose of seconding
the Motion submitted by the right hen.
Gentleman opposite the Member for the
University of Oxford (Sir John R. Mow-
bray). The House will feel, as I feel,
that.there is very little to be said after
the admirable speech in which he has
introduced this subject to the House.
To hen. Members sitting in the Parlia-
ment now about to commence who had
seats in the last Parliament, and in the
last Session, it seems' absolutely un-
necessary to say a word in favour of the
candidate before us. But to the new
Members what has been said by the
right hon. Gentleman is of importance.
I know not that I ought to trouble the
House with anything like a repetition

of it; but, at the same time, I feel dis-
posed to add two or three sentences to
those which he has offered. What
qualities are required in the presiding
officer of the House of Commons have
been, to a certain extent, described.
To now Members it must, I think, be
clear, although they have no acquaint-
ance with what has been done in this
House heretofore, that it is absolutely
necessary that the Speaker should have
a very complete and minute know-
ledge of the proceedings of the House,
and of its modes of transacting Busi-
ness. That, I think, we have found in
our late Speaker, as I doubt not we
shall find in the Speaker who is to come
ample knowledge of that kind. At the
same time, with regard to the question
of courtesy, I have observed that the
Speakers who have sat in that Chair
during the 40 years that I have been in
this House have been themselves marked
for their courtesy to individual Members.
There are abundant cases in which Mem-
bers require to consult the Speaker on
little difficulties that arise, or as to
points in their own procedure; and I
have looked sometimes almost with
wonder, but always with great admira-
tion, at the manner in which applica-
tions of this kind to the Speaker, from
every part of the House, have been re-
ceived by him. I have no doubt what-
soever that in the Speaker whom we
are about to elect we shall find this
courtesy as conspicuously displayed as
it has been by those who have preceded
him. Then there comes the question to
which the right hon. Gentleman has re-
ferred, and to which I would refer in
one sentence; and that is the idea, the
opinion, and the faith we have that
whosoever occupies that Chair should
be a man of inflexible impartiality, that
there should be no taint of Party feel-
ing or of Party spirit to influence him,
or attach to him, or be suspected of him,
in any of the transactions with which he
is connected. Then we have another
quality to which also some reference has
been made, and that is the quality of
courage and firmness. In a House like
this, composed of more than 600 Mem-
bers, debating with a freedom not sur-
passed, I suppose, in any other Legis-
lative Assembly, there occur cases in
which I should say that excitement and
passion take the place sometimes of
calmness and of reason. The questions


discussed are so great, they interest so
many, the feeling of Party sometimes is
so strong, that it would be deplorable
and a lamentable thing if we had, in
the Chair of this House, a feeble man,
wanting in courage and firmness on
these occasions. Well, I think, judging
by the past, that in placing Mr. Peel in
that Chair we shall have the confidence
that, while he will do justice to every
Party and every section in the House, at
least he will be certain to do this-to up-
hold the dignity of his own Office, and to
support the authority of the House
itself. I think I have said pretty nearly
all that is necessary in regard to this
matter. I believe that the House is
disposed, as the right hon. Gentleman
opposite has suggested, by a unanimous
vote, to elect Mr. Peel to that Chair. If
they do so they will confer upon him a
signal honour, and they will do a signal
service to the House itself, arid to the
millions whom we are supposed to repre-
sent within these walls. Of Mr. Peel I
will say that he bears a name famous in
the annals of Parliament; and I believe
that if he is elected to that Chair, when
the time shall come that his time of ser-
vice shall be completed, it will be found
that he has not lessened that fame, but
has rather added to it. I beg, Sir, to
second the Motion that Mr. Arthur
Wellesley Peel be called to the Chair of
this House.
Mn. JUSTIN M'CARTHY: Sir
Erskine May, in the absence of my hen.
Friend (Mr. Parnell), the Leader of the
Party with whom I have the honour to
act, it is not my intention to offer any
opposition to the Motion just submitted
to the House, or to what seems to be the
general decision of the House. It would
have given me pleasure if I could have
sincerely joined in all the commendations
whichhave been passed on the Gentleman
whose name has been proposed to-day.
It would have given me pleasure even if
I could have abstained on this occasion
from saying a word or two on behalf of
the Party with whom I act in this
House. But, Sir Erskine May, it would
be the merest affectation and something
like hypocrisy on my part, and on the
part of those on whose behalf I now
speak, if I were to allow the language
of unmitigated eulogy which has been
poured out in regard to Mr. Peel to pass
without some form of protest. I myself,
Sir Erskine May, had on the Books of


[JANUARYP 12, 18861

a Speaker. 12


this House, for a lengthened period of
last Session, a Notice of Motion inviting
the House to say that, on one occasion at
least, Mr. Peel did not act in an equitable
and impartial manner as regards one
Party in this House. Several of my Col-
leagues also had on the Books of this
HouseNotices of Motion of a similar kind
referring to the same, or to some other
and similar, transaction. The House,
therefore, will understand that, without
any wish to introduce debate on a ques-
tion of this nature, it would not be pos-
sible for me or my Friends to allow it to
go forth to the country-after having
ondeavoured as well as we could last
Session to obtain a vote from this House
finding fault with Mr. Peel's conduct for
want of impartiality-it would not be
possible for us to allow this Motion to
pass without protest, and to allow it to go
to the country that we admitted that
Mr. Peel was right in his action towards
us, and that we were wrong when we
endeavoured to induce the House of
Commons to censure him for that action.
I have no wish to intrude longer on the
attention of the House. So far as I am
personally concerned, in my relations
with Mr. Peel I have received nothing
but kindness and courtesy at his hands.
But I am not speaking now of Mr. Peel,
the private Gentleman whom we all
respect, nor even of him as Speaker of
this House in his ordinary relations
with Members; but I am speaking of
him as an officer ofthis House, who, in my
firm andsincere belief, actedon morethan
one occasion with a distinct want of that
impartiality which is one of the noblest
qualities in a Speaker, and for which he
has received such high, and I might al-
most say such unmeasured, praise to-day.
Beyond entering that protest, in order
that it may not be supposed that I and
my Friends concur in the compliments
which have been paid, I shall not fur-
ther detain the House.
The House then unanimously calling
Mr. PEEL to the Chair,
Mn. PEEL stood up in his place and
said: Sir Thomas Erskine May, I re-
spectfully thank the House for the man-
ner in which they have received the
mention of my name. I should be alto-
gether wanting, Sir, in the discharge of
the obligations of courtesy, and I hope
I may add of friendship, too, if I failed
to thank the right hon. Baronet the
MXr. Justin H1'Carthy


Member for the University of Oxford
(Sir John R. Mowbray) and the right
hen. Gentleman the Member for Bir-
mingham (Mr. John Bright) for the terms
they haveused towards mein respectively
proposing and seconding my nomination
to the Chair of this House. Two years
ago, Sir, it was the pleasure of this
House to elect me to fill that Chair.
They have been two years of eventful
history. I speak not of the mere per-
sonal considerations which arise in con-
nection with them. No Speaker could
have occupied that Chair for those two
years without having the importance of
that time pressed steadily upon him in-
dividually. But I may say that if I
have learned, as I have learned, much
during the occupation of that Chair for
two years, I have above all things learnt
this-more deeply to appreciate and more
fully to estimate the difficulties and the
delicacies which surround the occupant
of that Chair. And I am more deeply
conscious-I say it unaffectedly-I am
more deeply conscious than I ever could
have been before of my own short-
comings and failure to act up to the
great traditions of that Office. Sir,
these have been eventful years; they
have resulted in a General Election,
conducted, as it has been, under a Re-
form Bill and a Redistribution of Seats
Bill. The result has been that we are
now met together in this House with an
infusion of new Members such as has
neverbeenparalleled forthe last 50 years.
As one who has sat in this House for
20 years, may I remind those hen. Gen-
tlemen who, conversant as they are with
business of great importance outside this
House, are yet taking their places in
this Assembly for the first time-may I
remind them, as I wish to do without
presumption, that the Rules and Forms
and Proceedings of this House are
wedded to remote antiquity; that many
of them which seem to be new are deve-
lopments of the old; and that, while we
have adopted new Rules to suit the sup-
posed requirements of the day, we have
ever been influenced by a regard for pre-
cedent and old times. Many of our Forms
and Rules are old; some are new; some
are girt with the prescriptive dignity
of immemorial custom. Sir, if I am
elected-if it is the pleasure of the House
to elect me-to that Chair, I shall appeal
with equal confidence to new Members as
toold. Ishall askthemto approachthose


tOWOMMONS I


11 Eleetion of

Rules, Forms, and Orders, with that
generous and equitable spirit in which
alone they ought to be approached,
whether they have to be interpreted
and administered on the one hand, or
have to be complied with on the other.
I shall, above all, Sir, ask for the for-
bearance of the House. No one knows
better than I how much I shall stand in
need of it. The position of a Speaker,
the moral strain upon him, to say
nothing of the physical tedium, are
great calls and demands upon any indi-
vidual. Whatever those burdens may
be, Sir, whatever those difficulties may
be, they are lightened if one can feel
assured that one will have the co-opera-
tion and support of the House. With-
out that support the position of a Speaker
is untenable and intolerable; but there
is ample reward for anything that may
be gone through in the discharge of that
Office-I would say more, those difficul-
ties, which I have alluded to, vanish al-
together if one can be assured that in
some small measure, at least, one has
won the confidence of the House of
Commons. Sir, I respectfully thank
the House, and I very humbly place
myself at its entire disposal.
The House then again unanimously
calling Mr. PEEL to the Chair; he was
taken out of his place by the said Sir
JOHN R. MOWBuAY, and the said Mr.
B]lGIIT, and conducted to the Chair.
Then Mn. SPEAKER ELECT, standing
on the upper step, said: Standing in
this place, I beg again most respectfully
to thank the Members of this House for
the great honour they have done me,
and for the dignified Office with which
they have been pleased to invest me. I
shall remember all I have said; and I
beg to assure the House that I shall,
above all, try to exercise that virtue of
impartiality to which allusion has been
made. I shall strive to know no dis-
tinction of Party, but to appeal, with the
utmost confidence, not to one section of
the House or another, not to one Party
or another, but to the entire Assembly
of this House of Commons.
And then the Mace, which before lay
under the Table, was now laid upon the
Table. Then-
THE CHANCELLOR OF THEEXCHE-
QUER (Sir MICHAEL HICKS-BEAcH) rose
and said:,It is my agreeable duty, in the


name of this House, to tender to you,
Sir, ourhearty congratulations upon your
unanimous election, for the second time,
to the high and honourable Office of
Speaker of the House of Commons.
That Office, Sir, is, as you have already
stated, one of great labour and great
anxiety; but it is something more than
that. It is an Office requiring the
highest qualities in anyone who can
successfully perform its duties. The
highest sense of honour, the strictest
impartiality, not only as between diffe-
rent Parties or sections, but as be-
tween all the Members of the House;
the power to maintain with dignity and
firmness, but also with temper and with
tact, due order and liberty in our pro-
ceedings; a capacity for rapid and ac-
curate judgment, by which alone the
Speaker can deal with those many and
difficult questions which so often occur,
and which have to be decided in a mo-
ment under very unexpected circum-
stances-this, Sir, is a combination of
qualities which very few individuals are
fortunate enough to possess; and yet
such qualities are essential to the success-
ful performance of the duties of Speaker
of this House. But, Sir, there is some-
thing more without which even those
qualities cannot secure success, and that
is the possession of the confidence of
this House. That confidence, Sir, you
have already won. When, nearly two
years ago, you succeeded in that Chair
a man whose long and admirable ser-
vices had won for him the respect and
the affection of the House of Commons,
you stated, with becoming modesty, that
in your judgment the choice then made
was, at any rate to some extent, dictated
by a recollection of your near connection
with that great man whose name will
always stand as one of the first in our
Parliamentary history. Then, Sir, you
were reminded by the right hon. Gen-
tleman opposite (Mr. Gladstone) that
much was expected from you. That ex-
pectation has been morathanfulfilled. If,
at that time, the name of the father had
any influence in determiningthe choice of
the House, though that name can never
be forgotten, yet, to-day, we choose you
on account of the proved merits of the
son. We congratulate you on your
election to that Chair. Wecongratulato
ourselves still more that we have been
able to make such a choice. I have
dwelt upon the qualities necessary for a
