§ 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

§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Chairman do report Progress, and ask leave to sit again."— (Sir James Corry.)1799
§ MR. T. M. HEALY
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.
