HC Deb 17 March 1890 vol 342 c1092

Considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

Clause 1 agreed to.

Clause 2 agreed to, with Amendments.

Clause 3.

* MR. LAWSON (St. Pancras, W.)

May I point out to the hon. Member in charge of the Bill that as now drawn some of the clauses will be quite useless in the Metropolis. I believe he proposes to accept Amendments to apply the Bill to London?

* MR. LEES KNOWLES (Salford, W.)

There are certain Amendments having relation to the London County Council that require consideration. They will take some time, and perhaps the hon. Member will agree o their consideration on Report.

Clauses 3, 4, and 5 agreed to, with Amendments.

Clause 6.


At this point I must object. There are Amendments I wish to propose, but I have not yet framed them.


Perhaps the hon. Member will, in order that we may save time, now agree to move the Amendments on Report. Or will he mention them now?


I am sorry to object, but there are one or two clauses to which I wish to move Amendments; but as I had no idea the Bill was coming on to-night I am taken by surprise, and have not the Amendments ready.

Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Thursday.
