HC Deb 06 March 1882 vol 267 c185

asked the honourable Member for Liverpool, Whether, considering that the Partnerships Bill was read a second time in a previous Session without opposition, he is prepared to remove the opposing Notice which he has placed against the Second Reading of that measure?


, in reply, said, that the Bill which the hon. Member had introduced contained several exceptional provisions affecting the mercantile and commercial community, and his object in giving the Notice was to obtain for it full consideration. He could not see, because the Bill was read a second time at the fag-end of a Session, when it could not be fully considered, why he should withdraw his opposition to it.
