HC Deb 11 August 1881 vol 264 c1639

Consideredin Committee.

(In the Committee.)


complained of the arrangement of the Order Paper, pointing out that the Highways and Locomotives Act Amendment Bill and the Presumption of Life (Scotland) Bill had been omitted from the Order Paper yesterday. On some occasions this sort of thing might be very important, and he thought the Standing Order should be carefully observed in this respect. It might be a serious matter to a Member to have his Bill misplaced.


The hon. Member is quite mistaken. Bills have not been misplaced.

Resolved, That it is expedient to authorise the payment, out of moneys to be provided by Parliament, of Expenses which may become payable by the Admiralty under the provisions of any Act of the present Session to make provision with respect to the Navigation of the Solent between the Isle of Wight and the Mainland, in the county of Hants.

Resolution to be reported To-morrow.
