HC Deb 10 July 1890 vol 346 cc1407-8

Bill considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

Clause 1.


I object.

MR. MARJORIBANKS (Berwickshire)

I hope my hon. Friend will not object to this Bill going through. This is a very small Bill indeed; it is merely to secure that the 28th of May shall be the uniform removal term.


I have laid down a rule, otherwise I should be very glad to withdraw my objection.

MR. MARK STEWART (Kirkcudbright)

I appeal to the hon. Member to let the Bill go through. It is important that a uniform date should be fixed, and the Bill has the approval of the whole of Scotland.


I do not like to object to a Bill that the hon. Gentleman takes an interest in, but, having made a rule, I must adhere to it.

Committee report Progress; to sit again to-morrow.
