HC Deb 17 February 1890 vol 341 c538

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Dr. Tanner.)

Me. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)

I do not rise to make a hostile objection to this Motion, but to express a hope that if the Second Reading is taken now the hon. Member will not press the next stage, but allow sufficient time to consider possible Amendments. I do not wish to make any bargain in respect to my Bill, which has not yet been circulated, and I am quite ready to give this Bill a fair hearing, but will the hon. Gentleman agree to put it down for Committee not earlier than next week?

Dr. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)


Question put and agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and committed for Monday next.
