§ Bill, as amended, considered.
§ Clause 2 (Season during which wild fowl shall not be killed).
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ MR. MONK moved the insertion of the word "skylark" in the schedule. That delightful song-bird was regarded as game in France and other foreign countries, and protected during the breeding season.
§ Amendment proposed, in page 3, in the Schedule, after the word "siskin," to insert the word "skylark."—(Mr. Monk.)
§ MR. A. JOHNSTON
opposed the Motion. The schedule had been carefully considered by Gentlemen who thoroughly understood the subject, and their opinion was that the skylark should be excluded from the schedule.
§ MR. AUBERON HERBERT
said, there had been a kind of compromise among the Members of the Committee, who found it impossible to admit into the schedule birds of a doubtful character. He hoped the Amendment would be withdrawn.
§ Question, "That the word 'skylark' be there inserted," put, and negatived.
§ Bill to be read the third time To-morrow.
