HC Deb 23 June 1873 vol 216 cc1306-7

Order for Committee read.


said, it would be for the convenience of hon. Members that this Bill should be taken at a morning sitting, and he should therefore move that it be placed upon the Orders for To-morrow at 2 o'clock. It had already been arranged that the Canada Loan Guarantee Bill would be the first Order, and he proposed to take the General Valuation (Ireland) Bill next.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House will To-morrow, at Two of the clock, resolve itself into the said Committee."—(Mr. Gladstone.)


and several Irish Members, protested against this arrangement, and urged upon the right hon. Gentleman that the Committee should be postponed to Thursday.

Amendment proposed, to leave out the words "To-morrow, at Two of the clock," in order to insert the words "upon Thursday,"—(Sir Colman O'Loghlen,)—instead thereof.

Question put, "That the words 'Tomorrow, at Two of the clock,' stand part of the Question."

The House divided:—Ayes 47; Noes 25: Majority 22.

Main Question put, and agreed to.

Resolved, That this House will Tomorrow, at Two of the clock, resolve itself into the said Committee.
