HC Deb 05 August 1890 vol 347 cc1996-7

Bill considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

Clause 1.

Amendment proposed, in page 1, line 20, to leave out the word "ten," and insert the word "twenty."—(Mr. Caldwell.)

Question proposed, "That the word 'ten' stand part of the Clause."


I do not know whether this has been agreed to by the Lord Advocate; if not, I must ask that Progress be reported.

MR. PARKER SMITH (Lanarkshire, Partick)

I think it has been agreed to by the Lord Advocate. The Amendment is to allow the owners to have some larger percentage than the Bill provides.


Under the circumstances it would be well to report Progress.

Committee report Progress; to sit again to-morrow.
