HC Deb 24 March 1893 vol 10 c1155

Bill, as amended (by the Standing Committee), considered.

MR. BRODRICK (Surrey, Guildford)

said this measure had been before the Standing Committee.


I object.


said the Committee had ordered the Bill to be reported, and he merely desired to put it off to the 14th April.


I merely desired, Sir, to have it put off to the shortest possible period.

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

wished to protest against the action of the Front Opposition Bench in endeavouring to put off a Bill for nearly two months which the hon. Member (Mr. Brodrick) objected to against the wishes of those who supported the Bill, and without the authority of those who had charge of it.

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

pointed out that the hon. Gentleman mentioned the 14th, and not two months.

Consideration, as amended, deferred till Monday next.
