HC Deb 19 February 1885 vol 294 c896

Adjourned Debate on Second Reading [4th December].


said, that, inasmuch as Her Majesty's Government had undertaken to deal with the subject of this measure themselves, he should ask leave to postpone the further debate on the second reading of this Bill until Monday, it being, however, clearly understood that the promoters of this measure did not pledge themselves to withdraw it unless they were satisfied with the Government proposals. He begged to move the adjournment of the debate.

Motion agreed to.

Debate further adjourned till Monday next.
