HC Deb 21 December 1888 vol 332 cc992-3

Bill again considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

Question, "That Schedule B stand part of the Bill," put and agreed to.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Chairman do report the Bill without Amendment to the House."


I object to this Bill being reported to the House in its present state, seeing that we are very anxious to have everything done in order, and that there is a Preamble to this Bill. I submit to you, Sir, that before we report the Bill to the House, and as we are approaching the end of the Session, and as it is inconvenient to prolong the Session, it would be very inconvenient to report the Bill before we get through it. I therefore move that the Preamble to the Bill be adopted.


Order, order! The hon. Gentleman is in error. There is no Preamble to the Bill.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill reported, without Amendment; to be read the third time To-morrow, at Twelve of the clock.
