HC Deb 30 June 1834 vol 24 cc1005-6
Lord Althorp

rose to move, according to notice, that the Order of the Day for the third reading of the Poor laws' Amendment Bill have precedence of Notices on Tuesday. He believed, that this application was not an unusual one in Parliamentary practice, and he hoped, therefore, that hon. Members who had notices for tomorrow, would give way on the present occasion.

Mr. Thomas Attwood

had made several attempts in the course of the present Session, to bring forward motions of which he had given notice, but had always been interrupted by some stop-gap Bill or other, like the present. As it was, he had a motion on the list for to-morrow; and, therefore, if the noble Lord persisted in his motion, he would do all in his power, by moving the adjournment of the House, to frustrate his intentions.

Mr. Potter

complained of the speed with which the present measure was urged forward. It was only on Tuesday, that the amended Bill was put into their hands, and they had not had time to ascertain the sentiments of their constituents on the subject.

Mr. Grote

hoped the noble Lord would persist in his motion.

Motion agreed to.
