HC Deb 20 February 1880 vol 250 c1106

asked the Member for North Warwickshire, If he will consent to postpone his Motion to enable the Government to proceed with the Relief of Distress (Ireland) Bill?


Sir, in reply to the hon. Member for Cavan, I beg to state that I gave Notice of this Resolution at the close of last Session, and that I renewed it on the first day of this Session. I trust that if the House adopts this Resolution it will facilitate the passing of many measures, including among others the Bill for the Relief of the Irish Distress. I cannot accede to the request of the hon Member.
