HC Deb 06 August 1888 vol 329 c1816

Order for Second Reading read.

MR. JAMES STUART (Shoreditch, Hoxton)

asked, on the question of appointing a day for this Bill, that it should be set down for a time when it might be expected to come on. It was a very important Bill, containing matter of the greatest interest to the Metropolis, and involving an increase in the rates of 3d. in the pound.


said, he thought the hon. Member must see that, considering how the calculations of the Government as to occupation of time were continually upset, it was impossible to do more than postpone Bills from day to day. He hoped the Bill might come on to-morrow, for time was getting short; but he could not do more that put it off from day to day.

Second Reading deferred till To-morrow.
