HC Deb 01 June 1888 vol 326 c1000

Order for Second Reading read.

MR. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)

said, he hoped the House would agree to the second reading. The Bill had not yet been circulated; but a draft had been submitted to the representatives of inland fishermen in Ireland, and approved by them; and the next stage of the Bill would be set down for a date that would afford an ample interval for hon. Members who took an interest in the subject to give full consideration to the Bill. Of course, if the second reading was now opposed, there would be little chance of proceeding with the Bill.


said, as one who felt some interest in the subject he must object to giving a second reading to a Bill with the provisions of which he was not acquainted.

Second Reading deferred till Thursday 21st June.
