HC Deb 03 July 1878 vol 241 c736

in moving that the House do take into consideration the Lords' Amendments to the Bill, said, that the Amendments in question tended very much to restrict the powers given to the Metropolitan Board of Works with reference to the preservation of monuments in the Metropolis. He would, however, move their consideration.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House do now take into consideration the Lords' Amendments to the Bill."—(Sir James M'Garel-Hogg.)


thought that, looking at the importance of the measure, fuller time should be afforded for the consideration of the subject than then remained to them; and he would, therefore, appeal to the hon. and gallant Baronet not to proceed with the consideration of the Amendment at that time.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.

Consideration of Lords' Amendments deferred till To-morrow.
