HC Deb 17 April 1891 vol 352 c799

Considered in Committee.

(In the Committee,)

(2.45.) Clauses 1 and 2 agreed to.]


Motion made, and Question proposed," That this be the Preamble of the Bill."

MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N)

I beg to move that the Committee do not agree to the Preamble unless we Can have it fully explained by the Lord Advocate. As it is drafted, it is unintelligible and meaningless, and it is impossible to understand it.


It is unnecessary to move the rejection of the Preamble. All that is requisite is to say" No" to the Question that the Preamble stand part of the Bill.

The House divided:—Ayes 131; Noes 55.—(Div. List, No. 137.)

Bill reported, without Amendment.

Bill read the third time, and passed, without Amendment.
