HC Deb 12 May 1879 vol 246 c226

Order for Consideration, as amended, read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill, as amended, be now taken into consideration."—(Mr. Wheelhouse.)


, who had an Amendment upon the Paper to the effect, "That it be considered upon, this day six months," said, he was willing, if the House would permit him, to withdraw it, and allow the hon. and learned Member opposite (Mr. Wheelhouse) to forward the Bill a stage that night.


said, that as an Amendment to the Motion stood on the Order Book, the half-past 12 Rule absolutely precluded the Bill being taken.

Question put, and negatived.

Consideration, as amended, deferred till To-morrow.
