§ CONSIDERATION OF LORDs' AMENDMENTS.
§ Lords' Amendments considered.
§ First Amendment agreed to [Special Entry].
§ Amendment, in page 2, line 20, the next Amendment, read a second time.
§ THE LORD MAYOR OF DUBLIN (Mr. SEXTON) (Belfast, W.)
said, the Lords proposed to leave out certain words and insert other words. The original words were founded upon the English Act of 1872, and he hoped the Government would adhere to them. He moved that the House do disagree with the Amendment.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth disagree with The Lords in the said Amendment."—(Mr. Sexton.)
§ MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)
said, he had received a communication from the Chamber of Commerce in Dublin, begging him to support the Lords' Amendments, on the ground that they put the Bill in the same shape as the English Act. He found they did. It was understood, when the Bill was introduced, that it was to be similar to the English Act. When it reached the House of Lords it was found that it was not the same as the English measure; and the Lords' Amendments were simply intended to effect the similarity.
THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. MADDEN)(Dublin University)
said, the hon. Member for South Tyrone was quite correct in saying that the Bill as it went up to the 226 Lords was not in this particular similar to the English Bill.
§ Objection being taken to further Proceeding, the Debate stood adjourned.
§ Debate to be resumed To-morrow.
§ It being One of the clock, Mr. Speaker adjourned the House without Question put.
