HC Deb 05 April 1887 vol 313 cc475-6

Order for Third Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read the third time."—(Sir Charles Forster.)

MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)

I pro-test against this Bill being rushed through the House with headlong speed. The second reading was taken almost without Notice, and the Report of the Select Committee was only circulated this morning. I object to this style of doing Business, although it is characteristic of the method pursued by the Belfast Corporation in regard to all their legislative measures. This is a Bill in which my constituents are very much interested; and I beg to move that the debate be adjourned.


As the Bill is opposed, in accordance with the Standing Orders of the House it must go over until to-morrow.


Then to-morrow I shall repeat the Motion I have just made.

Bill to be read the third time Tomorrow.
