HC Deb 08 June 1875 vol 224 cc1560-1

Order for Committee read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the Chair."—(Sir John Lubbock.)


asked that the Bill should not be proceeded with at that hour, as there would be no time to discuss its provisions.


said, he was not aware that there was any serious objection to the Bill.


said, that the principle of the Bill had been approved several times, and he could not imagine that there was any objection to a measure which had the general support of the medical profession throughout the country.


protested against proceeding with the Bill at that time. There had been no discussion upon it, and time would not permit to discuss it then. He had many objections to the Bill, and one was that the whole subject should be dealt with by the Government. If there should be one Board of medical officers in this country, still there were the cases of Scotland and Ireland to deal with, and in those countries there might be different qualifications and examinations. This measure would accomplish nothing towards a system of uniformity.

And it being ten minutes before Seven of the Clock, the Debate was adjourned till this day.
