London, March 3.
Mr. Gladstone, in the House of Commons today, referred to the suspension of Henry Labouchere, on Friday last, for his language regarding Lord Salisbury in the discussion of the Cleveland street scandal, and asked that he be allowed to make the following motion:
The House deems it necessary to declare that when a member prefers a charge against a minister, which the minister denies, such member ought not to be restrained from refusing to accept the denial, and from persisting in the charge because the minister is a member of the House of Lords.
The announcement of the motion was greeted with opposition cheers.
The Rt. Hon. W.H. Smith, the government leader in the House, said he would consider Mr. Gladstone's request, and would let him know during the evening if he could accept the motion for tomorrow.
