Description

Excerpt from The Parliamentary Debates, Vol. 17: Fourth Series; Commencing With the Second Session of the Twenty-Fifth Parliament of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, 57 Victoriae; Comprising the Period From the Fifth Day of September to the Twenty Second Day of September, 1893
Lordships, each for himself, whether you should in your collective capacity as one branch Of the Legislature act upon your individual convictions and opinions in opposition to what you believe and have ascertained to be the view Of the House of Commons and of the country. I think that your Lordships know well the limits Of your power. You know that not being a Representative Assembly, and not backed by the strength which a representative character gives to a Legislative Body, and not sharing altogether the democratic principles which are making progress in this as in other countries, it would be unwise, impolitic, and unpatriotic to in sist upon your personal convictions by enforcing your own political convictions in opposition to what is believed to be the decided view of the country. Such was the case Of the Reform Bill Of 1832.
