HC Deb 02 August 1866 vol 184 c1910

(Mr. Knatchbull-Hugessen, Sir George Grey.)


Order for Third Reading read.


said, that there was an understanding that the Habeas Corpus Suspension (Ireland) Act should begin the business of the evening. He regretted that owing to the great pressure of business the Government had not been able to fulfil the engagement. But the hon. Member for Cork (Mr. Maguire) in the most obliging manner had allowed them to go on with the Public Health Bill, under the impression that it would not take up much time. He would not oppose the hon. Gentleman, if he wished it to move that the next three Orders of the Day be postponed until after the other Orders of the Day, so that the Government might fulfil their engagement; but, at the same time, he need not remind the hon. Gentleman that it was very important that the Reformatory School Bill should be read a third time, and the Industrial Schools Bill should be advanced a stage. But, at the same time, he was quite in the hands of the hon. Gentleman.


said, he was willing to assent to the proposition of the right hon. Gentleman.

Bill read the third time and passed.
