HC Deb 12 May 1887 vol 314 cc1798-9

Order for Committee read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the Chair."—(Sir James Carry.)

MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)

of course, we cannot expect that any pledge made by this Government will be kept. I shall say nothing on this very important Bill, as no Member of Her Majesty's Government is present; but I must say that after the statement of the First Lord of the Treasury (Mr. W. H. Smith) the absence of the responsible Minister is rather remarkable.

Question put, and agreed, to

Bill considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Chairman do report Progress, and ask leave to sit again."— (Sir James Corry.)


I am very glad this Motion has been made, and I trust that the Government will remember that these 86 Irish Members belong to a particular Party who sometimes do expect some statement of policy from Her Majesty's Government.

Question put, and agreed to.

Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Tuesday next.
