HC Deb 15 March 1893 vol 10 c157

Order for Second Reading read.


The hon. and learned Member for Mid-Armagh (Mr. Dunbar Barton) has introduced this Bill with me, at the request of the Recorder of Dublin, an eminent Unionist gentleman. Its object is to protect the poor by compelling people who make seizures to employ proper bailiffs. The Bill is supported by all the Conservative lawyers from Ireland, and I hope the Second Reading will be allowed to be taken.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Mr. T. M. Healy.)

MR. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)

We ought to be told something about this Bill. The Government might put it down as the first or second Order some day, so that we might have its objects explained.

MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)

I hope my hon. Friend will not object to the Bill at this stage. The case is exactly as it was put by the hon. and learned Member for North Louth. The Bill is introduced entirely in the interest of the poor of Dublin; and the Recorder of Dublin has a keen interest in it. I hope my hon. Friend will, therefore, allow the Second Reading to be taken.

Motion agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and committed for To-morrow.
