HC Deb 03 August 1891 vol 356 c1216

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House do now adjourn."—(Mr. Jackson.)

DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)

I beg to take this opportunity of pointing out to the right hon. Gentleman who happens to be the leader of the House, in the lamented absence of the First Lord of the Treasury, that a small Bill of great importance to the labourers of Ireland has been blocked and prevented passing into law; while the Government, by picking and choosing from among the private Members' Bills, have secured the passage of measures promoted by their own supporters. I must protest.

Notice taken, that 40 Members were not present; House counted, and 40 Members not being present,

The House was adjourned at a quarter before One of the clock till to-morrow.

House adjourned at a quarter before One o'clock.
