§ Bill, as amended, considered.
§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Londonderry, S.)
This is a very excellent Bill, and I do not see why it should not apply to Ireland. Therefore, I propose to amend the Preamble by leaving out "and Wales," in order to insert "Wales and Ireland."
§ Amendment proposed, in page 1, line 3, to leave out "and Wales," in order to insert "and Ireland."—(Mr. T. M. Healy.)
§ Question, "That the words proposed to be left out stand part of the Bill," put, and negatived.
§ Question, "That the words proposed be there inserted," put, and agreed to.
§ Preamble, as amended, agreed to.
§ MR. LOCKWOOD (York)
I do not know whether the House will allow the Bill to be read a third time now.
§ MR. SPEAKER
The third reading cannot be taken now, in consequence of the Amendment which has been introduced.
§ MR. GIBSON (Liverpool, Walton)
Considering that no Member of the Government has spoken on the Amendment which has been introduced, I think it will be well to postpone the third reading until Thursday.
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOE THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. BROADHURST) (Birmingham, Bordesley)
The Amendment was accepted by the Government; but, under the circumstances, I would advise the hon. and learned Member for York (Mr. Lockwood) to defer the third reading until Thursday.
§ Bill to be read the third time Tomorrow.
