HC Deb 09 July 1883 vol 281 c830

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Order for the Second Reading be discharged."


said, that in his opinion, and in the opinion of the vast number of naval officers he had consulted, the Bill was not one which, in its present shape, would be of any advantage to the Navy, and he was excessively glad that the Bill was not to be proceeded with.

Question put, and agreed to.

Order discharged; Bill withdrawn.
