§ Order for Consideration of Report read.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Sir MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH) (Bristol, W.)
, said, he must ask the hon. Member not to persist in his objection.
§ SIR MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH
said, that the Order had been placed first on Monday's Business Paper, in order that an opportunity might be given for discussion upon it, and that opportunity was not then taken. It was simply a formal Resolution, without which the Bill relating to the subject could not be proceeded with; and, therefore, he hoped that the hon. Member would withdraw his opposition.
§ Report deferred till To-morrow.
