HC Deb 15 June 1868 vol 192 c1620

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(The Earl of Mayo)


objected to the Bill being read a second time at so late an hour, and without explanation.


said, he thought that the right hon. Gentleman was rather unreasonable. The Bill was a hybrid Bill, and notices had been duly given in the Irish papers. Its objects were to make better provision for the preservation of the Curragh, and to appoint a Commission to ascertain the rights of the parties interested.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Debate be now adjourned."—(Lord Otho Fitz Gerald.)

Select Committee nominated:—Earl of MAYO, Mr. ATTORNEY GENERAL for IRELAND, Sir GRAHAM MONTGOMERY, Lord PROBY, Mr. COGAN, Lord OTHO FITZGERALD, and Five Members to be added by the Committee of Selection:—Power to send for persons, papers, and records; Five to be the quorum.
