HC Deb 09 August 1878 vol 242 c1711

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be read a second time this day."—(Captain Pim.)


moved that the second reading be postponed to the following Tuesday, on the ground that there could be no use in putting on the Order for a Saturday Sitting a Bill which could not possibly be passed.

Amendment proposed, to leave out the words "this day," in order to add the words "upon Tuesday next," — (Sir Charles W. Dilke,)—instead thereof.

Question put, "That the words 'this day' stand part of the Question."

The House divided:—Ayes 39; Noes 42: Majority 3.—(Div. List, No. 265.)

Words added.

Main Question, as amended, put.

Resolved, That the Bill be read a second time upon Tuesday next.
