HC Deb 15 May 1879 vol 246 c506

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be read a second time To-morrow, at Two of the clock."


protested against the Bill being set down at that time. The hon. Member for Swansea (Mr. Dillwyn) had likewise intended to oppose its being set down for such a time; but he was not then present. He should take the sense of the House upon the question of so interfering with the convenience of hon. Members as to set this Bill down for a Morning Sitting.

Question put.

The House divided:—Ayes 39; Noes 16: Majority 23.—(Div. List, No. 96.)
