§ SIR JOSEPH PEASE (Durham, Barnard Castle)
asked the President of the Board of Trade, Whether he expected to get the second reading of the Railway and Canal Traffic Bill taken before Thursday?
§ THE PRESIDENT (Mr. MUNDELLA) (Sheffield, Brightside)
, in reply, said, it was impossible for him to answer that Question. It entirely depended on the progress of Business. If the Crofters Bill had been got through last week he might have moved the second reading this evening.
