THE

OF THE

PROCEEDINGS and DEBATES

Of the FIRST SESSION of the HOUSE of COMMONS,

OF THE

Fifteenth Parliament of Great-Britain,

Appointed to meet at Weftminster, on Tuesday, the 31st day

October, 1780.

THE new writs having having been made returnable on the 31st of October, 1780, about three hundred members met this day in the rooms adjoining to the House of Commons, and a confiderable number of them having been sworn by the Lord Steward, the King went to the House of Lords about three o'clock, and sent the usher of the black rod to the Commons, commanding their attendance in the House of Lords. When the gentlemen were come to the Lords' bar, the Lord Chancellor [Lord Thurlow] said to them, “ His Majesty has been pleased to command me to acquaint you,that he will defer declaring the causes of calling this Parliament until there shall be a Speaker of the House of Commons. , And therefore it is his Majesty's pleasure, that you, gentlemen of the House of Cominons, do immediately repair to the place where the Commons usually fit, and there chuse a fit person to be be your speaker ; and that you prefent such person who shall be so cholen, to his Majesty here, for his royal approbation, to-morrow at two o'clock."*
