HC Deb 07 May 1834 vol 23 cc746-7

The Order of the Day for the Adjourned Debate on the Lord's Day Observance Bill, [see May 5,] was read.

Mr. H. Curteis

suggested the propriety of postponing all proceedings on the Bill for at least a week,—a course which, he contended, would show a proper respect to the House, after its rejection of a measure having a similar object by such a majority as had disposed of the proposition.

Lord Morpeth

hoped, that the Bill would be allowed to be brought in. No hon. Member would be compromised by assenting to such a course, and therefore the approbation of the measure would so far be qualified.

Mr. Warburton

suggested, that as he understood Bills directed to the same object were multitudinous in this and the other House of Parliament, it would be advisable that every hon. Member should introduce a Bill of his own, and that from the collection some measure might be adopted.

Leave given, and Bill brought in.
