§ Order for Committee read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the Chair."—(Mr. Chance.)
§ MR. CHANCE (Kilkenny, S.)
asked the indulgence of the House to be allowed to say that the Bill, which was agreed to by the Government, was simply an Amending Bill to remove a technical difficulty which placed the Court of Appeal in Ireland in a somewhat ridiculous position, and there could be no reasonable objection to it. He only asked that the formal stage be now taken.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
said, so far as the Government were 938 concerned, there was no objection to this stage.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill considered in Committee.
