HC Deb 17 April 1890 vol 343 c795

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill he now read a second time."—(Mr. Macartney.)


I object.


This is a Bill to adjust, I believe in an equitable sense, the cost of the registration of voters in the Borough of Belfast, in consequence of an addition to the borough, and I think my hon. Friend might agree to the Second Reading.

*MR. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)

I am quite willing to name a day which will give time for considering Amendments. I intend to submit them to the hon. Member for West Belfast in case the Second Reading be taken to-night.


Of course, if my hon. Friend is willing, and if the hon. Gentleman will acquaint my hon. Friend with all the steps that are taken, I will trust him so far.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and Committed for Monday, 5th May.
