HC Deb 29 July 1876 vol 231 cc59-60

said, that the Irish Cattle Show was to be held in Cork on the 2nd, 3rd, and4th of August, at which many Irish Members wished to be present. The Lord Lieutenant had graciously promised to attend, and had accepted an invitation to a banquet on Wednesday next. He wished to know, Whether, under these circumstances, the honourable Member for Londonderry County would proceed with his Motion on the Sale of Intoxicating Liquors on Sunday (Ireland) (No. 2) Bill on Wednesday next, having regard to the short time given for consideration of the Government Amendments?


in reply, said, he felt the greatest reluctance to deprive any hon. Member from meeting the Lord Lieutenant at Cork, and, so far as the hon. Member was concerned, he could pair with his Colleague, which would enable him to do so. It was his intention to ask the House on Wednesday to go into Committee on the Bill.
