§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ MR. A. MILLS,
in moving that the Bill be now read a second time, said, its object was to provide for a conjoint scheme of examinations, making uniform the test of admission to the Profession in the three Kingdoms, and providing for the direct representation of the Profession in the Medical Council. The measure contained provisions in regard to the double qualification of medical and surgical practitioners, and further provisions as to the registration of Colonial practitioners.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Mr. A. Mills.)
§ SIR CHARLES W. DILKE
did not think the House ought to go on with the Bill at so late an hour of the night. Hon. Members were aware that a large and important Government measure on this subject had been printed in "another place." The subject was very intricate, and this Bill appeared to be a very long one. Under the circumstances, he begged to move that the debate be now adjourned.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Debate be now adjourned."—(Sir Charles W. Dilke.)
§ MR. A. MILLS
said, he had no objection whatever to the adjournment of the debate, and he would put off the second reading till Wednesday next.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Debate adjourned till Wednesday next.
