§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, When the Ulster Canal Bill, as revised by the Select Committee, will be taken on the Report stage; are the Government in charge of the Bill; if not, who is; and, what opportunity will be given for preparing and discussing Amendments to it?
§ THE SECRETARY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
in reply, said, he believed it was proposed to take the Bill. He thought it would be unusual to give any opportunities for discussing Amendments beyond those that usually occur.
§ MR. T. M. HEALY
I intend to put down a great number of Amendments; and as there will be a Morning Sitting on Friday for the Local Government Bill, that would be an inconvenient time. Perhaps the hon. Gentleman would prevail on the promoters to postpone the Bill to next week?
