HC Deb 24 June 1886 vol 307 c267

Order for Consideration of Lords' Amendments forthwith read.

MR. J. WILSON (Edinburgh, Central)

observed that it was distressing that such a good and valuable Bill should be thrown out at that stage. With, reference to the hints about money being collected in certain quarters to oppose the present Government—[Cries of "Order!"]


said, that the hon. Member was out of Order in introducing matters which had nothing to do with the Question before the House.

MR. MARJORIBANKS (Berwickshire)

said, communications had taken place with the Sheriffs throughout Scotland; and these gentlemen had generally agreed, as far as possible, to make their charges conform to the Schedule of charges set down by the Lord Advocate, but which had been struck out of the Bill by the House of Lords.

Lords' Amendments considered, and agreed to.
