HC Deb 20 April 1893 vol 11 cc875-6

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Sir H. Maxwell.)

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

I object. We Irish Members can never get any Bill passed after 12 o'clock.

*MR. J. A. PEASE (Northumberland, Tyneside)

I would appeal to the hon. and learned Member opposite to withdraw his opposition. The promoters of the Bill are willing to allow Amendments in Committee so as to exclude Ireland if the Representatives of Ireland object to Ireland being brought within the purview of the Bill.

MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Cumborne)

Will the hon. Member assist us and the Irish Members in getting our Bills through?


As the hon. Member opposite has appealed to me, I will not oppose his desire. However, it must be clearly understood that it is out of respect to him and not in the interest of the Tory Party that I withdraw the objection. I am sorry he asks me to withdraw it.

Motion agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and committed for Thursday next.
