HC Deb 10 March 1880 vol 251 c742

Order for Second Reading read.


, in moving that the Order for the Second Reading of the Bill be discharged, said, he believed that a discussion on the Bill at the present moment would be productive of very small effect. The country was not in a frame of mind to care much about the question, and the House was not in a condition to pay much attention to its provisions. Besides, the Local Government Board had thought fit to institute some experiments since he brought the question forward, to see how far the provisions of the Bill would work, and the result of them could be considered at a future time. He now begged to move that the Order be discharged.

Motion agreed to.

Order discharged; Bill withdrawn.
