must appeal to the noble lord on the Woolsack Lord Who prevents you I can do that myself if that's nil Lord I really have reason to complain of the very gross and dinary Lord Brougham Why you've com- three already If you're going to speak ngain you had better let us have something in the shape of a tion The Lord If the noble has a motion to submit he is quite in order but if not I think his
