§ LORD ROBERT MONTAGU
appealed to the Chief Secretary for Ireland not to take the second reading of this Bill until 1053 after Easter, in view of the importance of the question, and the fact that many Irish Members were absent in Ireland at the Assizes.
§ SIR MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH
said, he thought it would be to the general advantage that the second reading should be taken as early as possible. He proposed on Monday next to intimate on what day it would come on. At present he hoped the second reading would be taken before the Easter holidays. He expected the Bill would be in the hands of hon. Members to-morrow.
