Gallery, Report from Committee to consider of erecting.

The Lord King reported from the Lords Committees appointed to consider and report to the House their Opinion, "Whether any and what Regulations and upon what Occasions it may be proper to admit any Persons and whom, into a Gallery in this House; and whether the same can be commodiously and in what Manner erected; with Power to send for Persons, Papers and Records."

That in Obedience to your Lordships Commands the Committee have met and considered the Matter to them referred, and have come to the following Resolution; (videlicet)

That it is the Opinion of this Committee, that it may be proper to admit, under certain Regulations and upon certain Occasions, certain Persons into a Gallery in this House, if the same can be commodiously erected.

That in Order to enable them to form an Opinion whether a Gallery could be commodiously erected in the House, the Committee directed some of the principal Officers of His Majesty's Works to attend them with a Design or Designs for a Gallery to be erected in the House of Peers.

That Sir William Chambers, Comptroller of His Majesty's Works, attended the Committee according to Order, and produced a Plan of the House of Peers, and a Design for a Gallery to be erected over the Lobby at the lower End of the House opposite the Throne, which he apprehends will not be subject to the Inconveniencies that were experienced from the former Galleries which were all erected within the House.

"That, according to the said Design, the Gallery proposed, is to have Six Rows of Benches, each Bench containing commodious Seats for Fourteen Persons, and consequently that the Gallery will conveniently accommodate Eighty-four Persons.

"That the Committee were desirous that the Rows of Benches might have been increased to Eight in Number, so as to have contained One hundred and Twelve Persons, and examined Sir William Chambers upon that Point, who informed them, "That he had originally drawn the Design with that Intention, but had altered it through an Apprehension that so large an Extent might endanger the Building;" at the same Time he declared his Opinion, "That the Design he then produced would neither weaken the Building nor disfigure the House."

"That your Committee were particularly attentive to examine Sir William Chambers in regard to every possible Inconvenience that might arise from the Erection of this Gallery, who declared his Opinion to be, "That it would neither increase the Heat of the House, give the least Obstruction to the Light, nor in any Degree affect the Voices either of the Speakers in the House or of Counsel at the Bar;" he acquainted the Committee also, "That he can contrive the Gallery so as to admit as much external Air as comes in by the present Window, though not perhaps without some Inconvenience to the Persons sitting therein:" The Committee being desirous of knowing what Time would be necessary for erecting the Gallery, were informed by Sir William Chambers, "That it may be completed in Three Months."

"The Committee then directed Sir William Chambers to attend them again at their next Meeting, with a Plan and Estimate of the Expence of a Gailery, as he had that Day proposed it to their Lordships.

"That your Committee at their next Meeting were attended by Sir William Chambers, according to Order, who produced a Plan, Section and Elevation of a Gallery, designed in every Point, respecting Convenience, so as to agree with the Answers he gave to their Lordships Interrogatories at the last Meeting, which the Committee approved, and which they humbly beg Leave to annex to this Report, for your Lordships Inspection and Consideration.

"Your Committee then examined Sir William Chambers in regard to the Expence, who informed them, "That he had made the most accurate Calculation that the Nature of the Thing would admit; and that he supposed the Expence of erecting the Gallery would amount to £600 or thereabouts; but that he could not pretend to ascertain the Expence with exact Precision, as it will depend in some Measure upon the Expences attending the pulling down those Parts of the old Building that are necessary to be taken away."

"Your Committee being solicitous to know whether the erecting the Gallery might occasion any Damps, or any Thing disagreeable to your Lordships at your next Meeting in Parliament, were assured by Sir William Chambers, "That he does not foresee any Inconvenience of that Nature."

"Upon the maturest Deliberation and Consideration of the Matters your Lordships have been pleased to refer to them, your Committee have come to the following Resolutions; (videlicet)

1. "Resolved, That it is the Opinion of this Committee, "That a Gallery, executed according to the Design delivered in by Sir William Chambers, Comptroller of His Majesty's Works, and hereto annexed, will be sufficiently commodious, and productive of no Inconvenience to the House."

2. "Resolved, That it is the Opinion of this Committee, That when His Majesty shall be pleased to be publicly present in this House, the said Gallery be allotted to the Accommodation of such Ladies as shall apply to the Lord Great Chamberlain, or his Deputy, and be admitted in pursuance of his Directions."

3. "Resolved, That it is the Opinion of this Committee, That at the Hearing of any Cause by Appeal or Writ of Error, such Persons be admitted into the said Gallery as are interested in such Causes.

4. "Resolved, That it is the Opinion of this Committee, That at such other Times as the House shall be sitting, and the Standing Orders 40 and 112 shall not be thought proper to be enforced, the said Gallery shall be allotted to the Members of the House of Commons and Irish Peers; such Irish Peers to be admitted respectively, on the Delivery of a Ticket, inscribed with the Title of such Irish Peer, and signed by a Peer of this House.

5. "Resolved, That it is the Opinion of this Committee, That the Admission of Persons into the said Gallery be in Manner aforesaid, under the Direction of the Lord Great Chamberlain, or his Deputy.

6. "Resolved, That it is the Opinion of this Committee, That the Chairman be directed to move the House, that a Day be appointed to take into Consideration the Standing Order 111, to the Intent that so much of the said Order as relates to the Admission of Ladies into the Body of the House, may after this Session of Parliament be vacated, and Peeresses only may be admitted; and that the House may be moved to resolve, That the Standing Order so amended be in future strictly adhered to.

"All which they beg Leave humbly to submit to your Lordships."

Ordered, That the said Report and Plans be taken into Consideration on Tuesday next; and the Lords summoned.

Standing Order No 111. to be considered.
