"The Committee are of opinion that there is no prospect of their being able to consider the remaining Clauses of the Bill, or any substantial portion of them, so as to allow the Bill to be reported to the House at such a period of the Session as would afford the House au opportunity of duly considering the Bill, and therefore the Committee have resolved not to proceed further with the consideration of the Bill."
