HC Deb 01 August 1890 vol 347 c1528

Lords Reason for disagreeing with certain of the Amendments made by the Commons, and the Lords Amendments to the Commons Amendments, and the Consequential Amendments to the Bill to be considered forthwith.

Lords Reason and Amendments and Consequential Amendments considered.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth not insist on the Amendments to which the Lords have disagreed; and doth agree to the Lords Amendments to the Commons Amendments, and to the Consequential Amendments made by the Lords to the Bill."—(Mr. Bryce.)

MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)

As there is no notice on the Paper in reference to this Bill, I should like to know whether the alterations which were made were considerable or not?

MR. BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)

The Amendments related simply to technical matters. The Bill repeals certain obsolete laws, and the Amendments by the Committee of this House, and to which the Lords have disagreed, are very few and not of sufficient importance to require that we should insist upon them. In all matters of any consequence, the Lords have agreed to the Amendments made here.

Question put, and agreed to.
