HC Deb 23 May 1879 vol 246 c1201

said, that the hon. and learned Member (Mr. Sullivan), who had charge of the Bill had asserted that, unless he could move the second reading at an early day, he should move to discharge the Bill. He found that the hon. and learned Member had not put in an appearance, nor had he given any instructions on the subject. Under those circumstances, he (Mr. Callan) did not feel justified in moving that the Order be discharged; but he assured the House that if the Order was postponed until Monday, and the hon. and learned Member then did not move its discharge, he himself would do so.


said, that in the event of no day being fixed for the adjourned debate it became a dropped Order.
