§ Resolution [May 26] reported.
§ SIR GEORGE CAMPBELL
remarked, that the first stage of this Resolution 1400 was taken very late last night, and was passed pro formâ on the understanding that the subject should be discussed at a later stage, and that the present stage should be taken at a reasonable hour. There were many Members who exceedingly objected to the course which the Government proposed to take in the matter; and, therefore, if the present stage was to be also regarded as only a matter of form, he hoped that a full opportunity for discussion would be given at a later stage.
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, a full opportunity would be given; but it was desired to take that stage in order that the Bill might be printed. The hon. Member for Hackney (Mr. Fawcett) had just given Notice of an Amendment on the second reading, which would, no doubt, raise a discussion.
§ Resolution agreed to.
§ Bill ordered to be brought in by Mr. RAIKES, Mr. EDWARD STANHOPE, and Mr. CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER.
