HC Deb 08 December 1888 vol 331 cc1565-6


Order read, for resuming Adjourned Debate on Amendment proposed to Amendment on Consideration, as amended [7th December].

And which Amendment was, In page 5, line 25, after "Parliament," to insert "including stock, shares, or bonds, the dividends or interest on which are guaranteed under 'The Tramways and Public Companies (Ireland) Act, 1883."'—(Mr. Murphy.)

And the Amendment proposed to the proposed Amendment was, after the word "including," to insert the words "with leave of the Court."—(Mr. Conybeare.)

Question again proposed, "That those words be inserted in the proposed Amendment."

Debate resumed.

MR. MURPHY (Dublin, St. Patrick's)

expressed his willingness to allow words to be inserted in his Amendment so that it would refer to dividends, &c., which "are guaranteed in perpetuity," and this he contended would meet the objections which had been urged against his proposition. The security was satisfactory in every way, and he could not conceive why the Government should not accept it.

MR. HUNTER (Aberdeen, N.)

said, he objected to the further discussion of the Amendment, as it related to a contentious measure.

Debate further adjourned till Monday next.
