HC Deb 25 May 1881 vol 261 cc1277-8

(Mr. Inderwick, Mr. Howard, Sir Edmund Filmer, Mr. Duckham, Mr. Arthur Vivian, Mr. Thorold Royers.)


Order for Second Reading read.


said, that as the Bill which was now before the House dealt only with a portion of the question respecting the abolition of tithe in regard to agriculture in England, it was not his intention to proceed with it. A Committee was sitting upstairs discussing the whole question. He should not ask that the Bill be referred to the Committee, but that the Order should be discharged; and when the Committee had considered the matter he should ask permission to introduce a measure.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Order for the Second Reading be discharged."—(Mr. Inderwick.)

Motion agreed to.

Order discharged; Bill withdrawn.
