HC Deb 08 August 1879 vol 249 c580

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Committee be deferred till Monday next."—(Mr. James Lowther.)


appealed to the Chancellor of the Exchequer to allow this Bill to be passed during the present Session. A Bill was brought in in 1874, and the promise had been repeated on various occasions since, that the grievances with which the Bill dealt should be removed. A promise was given in the beginning of the present year on behalf of the Government that the Bill should be brought in; but, nevertheless, it had only been recently introduced. Irish Members were unanimous as to the propriety of the measure; and he would appeal to the right hon. Gentleman the Chancellor of the Exchequer to fix the Bill for such a time that it might be passed before the end of the Session.


said, that he was very anxious to proceed with the Bill, and he trusted they might have an opportunity of considering it.

Motion agreed to.

Committee deferred till Monday next.
