HC Deb 06 June 1893 vol 13 cc401-2

Order for Third Reading read.

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


said, that before the Bill was read a third time he should like to know what course the Irish Government proposed to take with regard to it? It seemed to him that it would be absolutely unworkable. It was a mere transcription of the English Bill, which would not fit in with any Act in existence in Ireland, and would require considerable amendment. He did not object to the principle of the Bill, but he could not assent to the Third Reading until he knew what steps the Irish Office proposed to take to amend it.

MR. MARJORIBANKS (Berwickshire)

said, that certain Amendments were to be introduced in the Bill in another place to remedy the defects of which the hon. Gentleman complained.


said, that, in view of that statement, he would not object to the Third Reading.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill read the third time, and passed.
