§ SIR H. DRUMMOND WOLFF
asked the honourable Member for East Worcestershire, Whether, notwithstanding the lateness of the Session, and the declaration recently made by the President of the Board of Trade, he intends proceeding this year with the Copyright (Works of Fine Art, &c.) Bill?
§ MR. HASTINGS
This Bill having been read a second time, it is my intention to again ask the House, at the earliest available opportunity, to go into Committee upon it. I trust that the hon. Member for Portsmouth will withdraw his block, to enable me to take the sense of the House, and thus give me the fair opportunity of replying to his observations when he talked out the Bill on the 17th of May last.
