HC Deb 08 July 1887 vol 317 cc322-3

Order for Third Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed.

"That the Bill be now read the third time."—(Dr. Cameron.)

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

I entertain no hostility to this Bill; but looking at the hour of the morning, and to the fact that there will most likely be a discussion on the Amendment, I trust the hon. Member will postpone the third reading to some day next week.

DR. CAMERON (Glasgow, College)

If the right hon. Gentleman will move the re-commitment of the Bill, I would move the Speaker out of the Chair, and Progress can be at once reported.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.

Order for Third Reading discharged.

Motion made, and Question, "That the Bill be re-committed,"—(Mr. W. H. Smith,)—put, and agreed to.

Motion made, and Question, "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the Chair." —(Dr. Cameron,)—put, and agreed to.

Bill considered in Committee; Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Tuesday next.
