The following is the concluding portion of Friday night's sitting : — Mr Marchant supported the amendment. Captain Russell said that if there was any blame bestowed at all in the matter, it was on the inefficient Committee, which totally failed to grasp the situation. As to the statement that Mr. Bell appeared more for the Ministry than for the Bank he (Mr. Bell) had written stating that he never held any communication with Sir F. Whitaker, Sir H. Atkinson, or Mr Mi'tchelson on the subject of Mr Hutchison's charges. After further discussion Mr Macarthur's amendment was carried by 30 to 21, and the motion as amended was then agreed to on the voices. Mr Ballance said that as the powers of the Committee had been restricted and a new order of reference made, and after the abuse which had been heaped upon the Committee and the censure passed by the House, he could no longer take part in the Committee's deliberations. Sir H. Atkinson had agreed upon an order of reference which they considered fair to both sides, and he must protest against the new order of things which had been set up, and he asked to be relieved of further attendance on the Committee. Messrs Larnach, and Seddon, and Dr Fitchett also signified their intention of taking no further part in the proceedings of the Committee j\fter the action taken by the House, and the comment of the Ministers. The House rose at 2,45.
