HC Deb 30 July 1832 vol 14 cc930-1
Mr. Alderman Wood

complained that the hon. member for Glasgow (Mr. Dixon), had, on Saturday, in a most unprecedented manner, taken the Steam Navigation Bill out of his hands, and by moving that it be read a second time that day six months, had defeated the measure.

Mr. Dixon

replied that he had done so, with full notice to the hon. Alderman, who nevertheless persisted in quitting the House, although apparently not at all indisposed. He denied, therefore, that he had taken any unfair advantage of the absence of the principal supporter of the Bill.

Mr. Alderman Wood

must continue to think himself aggrieved, and unjustly treated, for he had never heard of a measure being taken, as was done by the hon. Member, out of the hands of the person who introduced it.
