An illustration may be given of the former licence in amendments. To the question for the Speaker's leaving the chair for the committee on the Reform Bill, 6th Aug. 1831, an amendment was moved for the production of papers on the state of Poland; and on an analogous proceeding, 9th May, 1834, the Speaker stated “that, according to the forms of the house and the
law of Parliament, there was no necessity that an amendment should be akin to the question," 86 C. J. 758; 89 ib. 271; 23 H. D. 3 s. 785.
