HC Deb 29 April 1892 vol 3 cc1744-5

Order for Second Reading read.

Objection taken.

*(12.0.) MR. KNOX (Cavan, W.)

I ask the hon. Member (Mr. Kelly) to withdraw his objection. Last year the Government assented to the principle by allowing the Second Reading of a precisely similar Bill.

*(12.0.) MR. KELLY

I am perfectly well aware what the Bill is, and if the promoters of it will agree to accept the Amendment proposed by my hon. Friend the Member for South Antrim (Mr. Macartney) there will be no difficulty in getting the Bill through.


If the hon. Member had taken occasion to mention this Amendment we should have been very glad to have considered it.


The Amendments have been down on the Paper two successive years, I believe, and I am perfectly sure that some were actually discussed in Committee last year.

Second Reading deferred till Monday next.
