HC Deb 12 August 1871 vol 208 c1524

, having heard with regret that the Government intended to give up the Betting Bill, asked if they would also abandon the Prison Ministers Bill, as the same arguments with regard to the former measure were applicable to the latter. If the Government would not withdraw it as well, he hoped that all the obstructions that the forms of the House permitted would be brought to bear against the Bill.


remarked that the hon. Gentleman would yet have the fullest opportunity of explaining his views.

Main Question, "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the Chair," put, and agreed to.
