Standing Orders Committee,—Resolution reported;
That, in the case of the Metropolitan Foreign Cattle Market Bill, the Standing Orders ought to be dispensed with:—That the Bill be permitted to proceed.
§ Resolution read a second time.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth agree with the Committee in the said Resolution."
§ MR. MILNER GIBSON
said, he should move an Amendment that the Bill be considered on Monday next. He protested against the course which had been pursued with regard to the Bill. When the Parliamentary Notices for the Bill were given all mention of the main object of the measure was avoided, lest it should occasion 1469 alarm to the owners of property who would be affected; and if this Report were now agreed to without question the promoters of Bills for the future would be able to say, "Don't put anything into the Notices that will excite alarm, but put in any Clauses which might have started objections when the Bill is before the Select Committee, and when the matter goes before the Standing Orders Committee; they will allow the Standing Orders to be dispensed with."
To leave out from the word "That" to the end of the Question, in order to add the words "the further consideration of the said Resolution be postponed till Monday next."—(Mr. Milner Gibson.)
§ Question proposed, "That the words proposed to be left out stand part of the Question."
§ Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
§ Main Question put, and agreed to.
