HC Deb 30 July 1885 vol 300 c519

asked the honourable Member for county Cavan, Whether he will withdraw his notice of opposition to the Tramways Order in Council (Ireland) Bill, so as to allow that measure to be discussed?


in reply, said, he had never known a case in which there was so much anxiety to have a Bill defeated as in regard to this particular Bill; and he did not feel disposed to withdraw his Notice of opposition, and thus assist Sir George Colthurst, who was a nephew of the hon. and gallant Member for Cork County, to rob the ratepayers.
