HC Deb 28 May 1880 vol 252 cc638-9

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether, considering that a request has been made by large and influential bodies of employers that the Prime Minister will receive a deputation upon the subject of the Employers' Liability Bill (which Bill was only delivered on Monday last), he will postpone the Second Reading of that Bill until an opportunity has been given to that de- putation to express their views upon this important subject?


in reply, said, the Prime Minister had agreed to receive a deputation, and the second reading of the Bill would be postponed until Thursday, when it would be taken as the first Order of the Day.
