HC Deb 03 August 1888 vol 329 cc1417-8
MR. DILLWYN (Swansea, Town)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, in view of the great amount of Business remaining to be transacted before the proposed adjournment of the House in the present month, and considering the discussion to which the Tithe Rent-Charge Bills are certain to give rise, he will defer their further consideration to the November Sitting of Parliament?

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

I have considered the Question of the hon. Gentleman; and with a desire to meet what I believe to be the convenience of hon. Members, I have come to the conclusion that it would not be desirable to ask the House to consider these Bills during the present Sitting. I hope I may appeal to hon. Gentlemen who are connected with Wales to exercise their influence to prevent any breach of the law during the interval which must elapse before this question can receive the consideration of Parliament.

MR. J. BRYN ROBERTS (Carnarvonshire, Eifion)

Does the right hon. Gentleman refer to breaches of the law by the people or the police?

[No reply.]
