asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is his intention to take the Committee stage of the Poor Relief (Ireland) Bill to-night, the second reading of which he carried under circumstances to which it would be better not to refer?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
I should be very glad indeed to take the Committee stage of the Bill to-night, as, in my opinion, hon. Members the other night seemed satisfied. [Mr. BIGGAR: No, no!] Well, a pretty large number in the House, with one or two exceptions, seemed satisfied, and I should be very glad to make the same explanation again on the Motion that the Speaker do leave the Chair; but if hon. Members were not satisfied I will take the Committee stage at an earlier hour.
