HC Deb 29 March 1887 vol 312 c1876

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House do now adjourn."

MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)

I think I am entitled to an answer to the question I have just put to the hon. and gallant Gentleman (Colonel Saunderson). I am greatly interested in this matter, because I have for more than a year been endeavouring to obtain an extension of the municipal franchise of Belfast. Surely, I do not make an unreasonable request when I ask the hon. and gallant Gentleman whether he intends to trust to chance in passing this Bill, or to ask the Government to afford him some facilities for the consideration of the Bill?


I hope Her Majesty's Government will give facilities for passing this Bill, which I am just as anxious to pass as the hon. Member himself.

Question put, and agreed to.

House adjourned at twenty minutes before One o'clock.
