HC Deb 29 August 1887 vol 320 c280
MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)

asked, with reference to the Law of Evidence Amendment Bill, Whether the Government intended to keep it still on the Paper, and keep Members in attendance for it?

THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

said, he did not think this Bill would cause any prolonged opposition. Opposition would be offered in a very small quarter of the House. The Bill was received with almost universal favour; and he conceived that it would be his duty to endeavour to pass it in the present Session.


said, he had a number of Amendments to the Bill; and if necessary he would wait till the end of the Session if the Bill was to be proceeded with.
