HC Deb 02 March 1869 vol 194 cc487-8

said, that the second reading of this Bill stood on the Orders for Thursday, and he begged to ask the hon. Member for Meath on what day he intended to proceed with that Order? and to give him Notice that unless a day was fixed giving a reasonable and proper opportunity for discussion he would oppose the postponement of the Order on Thursday next.


said, that he stated last night, in answer to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Cambridge University (Mr. Walpole), that he was not then in a position to name the day, nor was he now; but he hoped on Thursday night to fix it, and it would be the most convenient he could find after Easter.
