§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Mr. Dodds.)
§ MR. J. W. BARCLAY
said, that, for the same reasons as those which had been stated in regard to the two previous Bills, he would move that the debate upon the present Bill be also adjourned.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Debate be now adjourned."—(Mr. J. W. Barclay.)
§ MR. SPEAKER
I must point out to the hon. Member that the Question before the House is the adjournment of the debate. That Motion having been made, the hon. Member must confine his observations to that Question.
§ MR. HICKS
said, that he would confine himself to it. He thought it must commend itself to the House that the whole of the so Bills ought to be treated in the same way. He ventured, however, to indorse the hope which had been expressed by the noble Viscount the Member for South Wilts (Viscount Folkestone) that when they met again to consider these Bills, after the adjournment, the promoters would be ready to come forward with an assurance that these most objectionable clauses had been struck out.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Debate adjourned till Tuesday 6th March.
