HC Deb 24 March 1868 vol 191 c206

Order for Second Reading read.


said, he would ask the hon. Member for Dudley (Mr. H. B. Sheridan) to postpone the second reading; partly, because the Bill had not been distributed, though he believed it was in the Bill Office; and partly, because clauses requiring a communication to be made between the guards and passengers of railway trains had been introduced in a Bill brought into the other House by his noble Friend the President of the Board of Trade. It would be more convenient to wait until that measure came down to them, and then the House would see whether the principle for which the hon. Member had so long contended had been sufficiently carried out in the Government Bill.


said, he had no objection to the course proposed by the right hon. Gentleman.

Second Reading deferred till Tuesday, 21st April.
