Motion made, and Question proposed,
That the Contract dated the 18th day of March 1887, for the conveyance of the East India and China Mails, be approved."—(Mr. Jackson.)
§ DR. CLARK (Caithness)
I beg, Sir, to move the adjournment of the debate. At this late hour (1 o'clock), as many Members, I understand, wish to speak upon this subject, it would be very inconvenient to proceed.
§ Motion made, and Question, "That the Debate be now adjourned,"—(Dr. Clark,)—put, and agreed to.
§ Debate adjourned till Thursday.
