HC Deb 24 April 1891 vol 352 cc1322-3
MR. KELLY (Camberwell, N.)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the overwhelming majority by which the Motion for the Second Reading of the Places of Worship Enfranchisement Bill was carried, and of the technical character of the Amendments which are likely to be made in its provisions in Committee, he would be willing to agree to a Motion to refer it to the Standing Committee on Law, &c.


Unless it is the unanimous wish of the House it is not usual to refer a private Member's Bill to a Select Committee, such reference being confined to Government measures. The question is, therefore, essentially one for the decision of the House, as the Government have no particular interest in the Bill to which the hon. Member refers.
