(In the Committee.)

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Chairman do report Progress, and ask leave to sit again."—(Colonel Makins.)

DR. CLARK (Caithness)

said, he could not agree with the proposal. This was a very important measure. Every one of its previous stages had been passed without opposition. The Scottish Members were in favour of it. He thought they should make some progress with it without further delay.

It being half an hour after Five of the clock, the Chairman left the Chair to make his report to the House.

Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Wednesday next.

House adjourned at twenty-five minutes before Six o'clock.
