§ Order read, for resuming Adjourned Debate on Question [15th July], "That the Bill be now read a second time."
§ Question again proposed.
§ Debate resumed.
§ MR. J. G. TALBOT
said, it was understood that at that time of the Session it was useless to proceed with Bills of a highly contentious character. He thought it would be impossible at that time to discuss a matter of this importance; and, therefore, he thought that the proper course would be to discharge the Order.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Order be discharged."— (Mr. Newdegate.)
§ MR. SPEAKER
said, in the absence of the hon. and learned Member in charge of the Bill (Mr. Hopwood), it would be a very unusual course for the Order to be discharged.
§ Debate further adjourned till Wednesday next.
