HC Deb 02 March 1865 vol 177 c957

said, he would beg to ask the hon. Member for Leeds, Whether it is his intention to proceed with the Second reading of the Borough Franchise Extension Bill in the week fixed by law for holding the Courts of Quarter Sessions throughout England and Wales?


said, in reply, that he had fixed the 5th of April for the second reading of the Bill by the advice of an officer of the House, believing that the arrangement would meet the convenience of Members generally for the discussion of the measure. Finding, however, that the Quarter Sessions met during that week, he at once intimated his willingness to change the day, and now begged to defer his Motion for the second reading of the Bill to the 3rd of May.
