HC Deb 17 August 1893 vol 16 cc507-8

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."

Objection taken.

MR. JESSE COLLINGS (Birmingham, Bordesley)

appealed to the Irish Members to withdraw their objection, for the Bill merely proposed to give to English agricultural labourers some of the privileges which had been enjoyed for years by the Irish labourers.

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

said, the Irish Members had brought forward a number of admirable measures, all of which had been objected to by the friends of the hon. Member. Tit for tat.

Second Reading deferred till Thursday next.
