HC Deb 20 March 1890 vol 342 c1354

Order for Committee read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Speaker do now leave the Chair."—(Mr. Knowles.)


I object.


I would appeal to my hon. Friend who takes, I know, a deep interest in sanitary matters, to allow us to proceed with this Bill, which will be a, most useful measure.


I should be most happy to do so, but again and again I have expressed my opinion against proceeding with legislation after 12 o'clock, and, as a matter of principle, I must maintain my objection.


I think, on reflection, my hon. Friend will be disposed to agree with mo that it is better to have a useful measure passed after 12 o'clock than not to get it at all. There are several provisions in this Bill which have undergone consideration year after year by the Committee on Police and Sanitary Regulations.


I cannot understand the appeal of my hon. Friend.

Question put, and agreed to. Bill considered in Committee.

Clause 6.

Objection being taken to further proceeding, the Chairman left the Chair to make his Report to the House.

Committee report Progress; to sit again to-morrow.
