HC Deb 31 May 1888 vol 326 c873

Bill considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

Clause 1 agreed to.

Clause 2 (29 & 30 Vict. c. 117, s. 14. Youthful offenders may be sent to certified reformatory school without the imposition of a term of imprisonment).

On the Motion of Mr. DUGDALE, the following Amendment made:—In line 12, leave out "who," and insert "is."


said, he would suggest to the hon. Member for the Nuneaton Division of Warwickshire (Mr. Dugdale) that Progress should be now reported. He had no wish to take up a position of opposition to the Bill; but he had to make some reference to the schools at Dublin and at Bandon, and did not quite know how they would be affected by the Bill, though he feared it was not all plain sailing. Possibly, an agreement would be arrived at; but he was unprepared to discuss the points he wished to raise, as he did not expect the Bill would be reached.

MR. DUGDALE (Warwickshire, Nuneaton)

said, he was quite willing that further progress with the Bill should be postponed till Monday.

Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Monday next.
