HC Deb 22 November 1888 vol 330 c1931

Order for Committee read.

Mr. HALDANE (Haddington) moved that the Order be discharged and the Bill withdrawn. Several Notices of opposition had been put down, and the promoters of the Bill felt that if they agreed to the Amendments they would be passing not a living Bill, but a skeleton Bill. Under the circumstances, the promoters of the Bill concurred in thinking it would be bettor to defer the measure.

Motion made, and Question, "That the Order be discharged, and the Bill withdrawn,"—(Mr. Haldane,)—put, and agreed to.

Order discharged.

Bill withdrawn.
