§ (Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, Sir. Jackson.)
§ COMMITTEE. [Progress 24th March]
§ Order for Committee read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Committee be deferred till To-morrow."—(Mr. Jackson.)
§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)
I should like to know what the object of the Government is in putting this Bill down night after night. They have chosen to bring in a Coercion Jubilee Bill, which is to be taken to-morrow. To put down this Bill for to-morrow, too appears to me to be extremely inconvenient. I therefore suggest that after "To-morrow" the word "week" be inserted.
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
It i possible the hon. and learned Member (Mr. T. M. Healy) has overlooked the fact that the Bill has been put down for tomorrow to meet the convenience of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Wolverhampton (Mr. Henry H. Fowler).
§ MR. T. M. HEALY
I ask the Government not to put the Bill down for to-morrow, because by the time it arrives for consideration we shall all be exhausted.
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. HOLMES) (Dublin University)
As an arrangement has been made to take the Bill to-morrow it would hardly be proper to alter it now.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Committee deferred till To-morrow.
