§ SIR HENRY EDWARDS
said, he would appeal to the hon. Member in charge of this Bill to postpone it till after Whitsuntide? Many Members were much interested in the measure, and it was likely to lead to a long debate. There was little probability of its coming on before half past ten, after which hour the hon. Gentleman had promised not to proceed with it.
MR. J. A. SMITH
said, he was very anxious to take advantage of every opportunity of forwarding the Bill, especially considering the difficulty in which private Members were placed this Session; but he could not withstand the representations which had been made to him, and would postpone the measure to the 26th of June.
