§ CONSIDERATION. [ADJOURNED DEBATE.]
§ Order read, for resuming Adjourned Debate on Question [10th May], "That 152 the Clause (Application of Act to Ireland),—(Mr. Barton,) — which was offered to be added on Consideration of the Bill, as amended, be read a second time."
§ Debate resumed.
§ MR. TIMOTHY HEALY (Longford, N.)
I have every desire to assist the hon. Baronet (Sir Edward Birkbeck) in proceeding with the Bill, but I think he finds here some little difficulty of procedure. The hon. Member for Mid Armagh (Mr. Barton) suggested a new clause, to which objection being taken, I think there was no objection to it being withdrawn or negatived. He is not here, but I presume in his absence the House may negative it?
§ Question put, and negatived.
§ Bill to be read the third time upon Monday next.
