HC Deb 02 July 1883 vol 281 c56

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?


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.
