§ Bill considered in Committee, and reported; to be printed, as amended. [Bill 213.]
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be re-committed for To-morrow, at Two of the clock."
§ SIR R. ASSHETON CROSS
asked, whether it was really wise to put the Bill down for that time, because it could not be reprinted by 2 o'clock, and could not come on at that time.
§ MR. COURTNEY
said, the Bill would be delivered at 2 o'clock.
§ MR. ONSLOW
inquired whether the Amendment to the Bill, as it now stood, would hold good if the Bill came up at 2 o'clock, considering that the Bill had now been reconsidered?
§ MR. SCLATER-BOOTH
asked whether it was fair to Members who had put Amendments on the Paper as a matter of form?
§ MR. W. H. SMITH
said, the question was whether the Amendments on the Paper to the Motion that the Speaker leave the Chair would stand good for the amended Bill? The answer to that question would, he believed, satisfy hon. Members having Amendments.
§ MR. SPEAKER
The Amendments on the Motion that the Speaker leave the Chair in going into Committee on this Bill remain as Amendments on the Paper.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Bill re-committed for To-morrow at Two of the clock.
