HC Deb 15 May 1879 vol 246 c507

Order for Second Beading read.

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


objected to the Bill being taken at 2 o'clock in the morning, and this was not the first occasion on which he had had to raise a similar objection. The consequence of Bills being set down for a Morning Sitting at 2 o'clock was to compel a number of hon. Members to wait about for the possibility of the matter in which they were interested being taken. He had no objection to the Army Regulation and Discipline Bill being taken at the Morning Sitting; but he did not see that there was any reason to encroach further upon the time of private Members.


observed, that there was no reason why this Bill should not be taken as was proposed. It was a Bill to relieve trustees——


reminded the hon. and learned Member that the Question before the House was, whether the second reading of the Bill should be fixed for that day at 2 o'clock.

Second Reading deferred till To-morrow.
