HC Deb 12 June 1893 vol 13 cc866-7

Order for Second Reading read.

* SIR J. LUBBOCK (London University)

moved the Second Reading of this Bill, stating that he was willing to refer it to a Select Committee, and to allow counsel to be heard with regard to it.

MR. P. M'HUGH (Leitrim, N.)

I object.

MR. J. BARRY (Wexford, S.)

I appeal to my hon. Friend to withdraw his objection. This is in no sense a Party Bill.


As long as the right hon. Gentleman in charge of this Bill continues to support the obstruction of the Home Rule Bill I shall object.

MR. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick's)

I would appeal to my hon. Friend to withdraw his objection, because of the great necessity there is for this Bill in all parts of the country.

* SIR F. POWELL (Wigan)

; Mr. Speaker, is it in accordance with the Rules of the House that when an hon. Member rises to oppose a Bill he should state that he does so because the Member in charge of it is opposing another measure.


The hon. Member may have his motive, but he need not state it.

Second Reading deferred till Monday next.
