HC Deb 30 July 1883 vol 282 c1104

Order for First Reading read.


said, it would be no use putting this Bill down for Monday, as it was sure to be blocked. What good was there in filling up the Notice Paper day after day in this way with measures which everybody knew could not come on?—it only puzzled Members. He would ask the Government to let them have some other instalment of Irish Business, and to postpone this Bill to Monday week. Let the Government endeavour to make progress with the Irish Registration Bill.


said, that probably within the next few days some further statement would have to be made as to the arrangement of Public Business. It would, therefore, be more convenient to let the measure remain down for Monday.

Bill presented, and read the first time. [Bill 274.]

House adjourned at a quarter before Five o'clock in the morning.
