§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ * SIR J. LUBBOCK (London University)
moved the Second Reading of this Bill, stating that he was willing to 867 refer it to a Select Committee, and to allow counsel to be heard with regard to it.
§ MR. J. BARRY (Wexford, S.)
I appeal to my hon. Friend to withdraw his objection. This is in no sense a Party Bill.
§ MR. P. M'HUGH
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.
§ Second Reading deferred till Monday next.
