§ Order for Committee read.
§ (12.1.) THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON,) Leeds, N.
I do not know whether it is of any use making an appeal to hon. Members opposite, but may I say that this is merely a Consolidation Bill, that it meets with general concurrence in the House, and it has passed Committee. The hon. Member for Bethnal Green has given notice of two Amendments; but I think he will be satisfied with the explanation I can give him. I am quite aware that 12 o'clock has struck, but I do not think there is any objection to the Bill on its merits.
§ (12.1.) MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)
I would gladly support the appeal of the right hon. Gentleman if the Government would act reasonably, 807 but they will not. I have a most admirable Bill before the House, a Bill which meets the general wishes of every part of the House; it has even the support of the hon. Member for South Tyrone——
§ Committee deferred till to-morrow.
