HC Deb 30 August 1895 vol 36 c1376

THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir J. GORST, Cambridge University) moved for leave to bring in a Bill to annul an Order in Council comprising a scheme relating to a Foundation known as the Berriew School.


said, it was a matter of courtesy to the right hon. Gentleman to inform him that this was a contentious Bill; it dealt with a Welsh charity, and was brought under the patronage of the Church party; if, after this statement, the right hon. Gentleman went on with it he could not say he had not had a fair intimation that it would be opposed.

Bill ordered to be brought in by Mr. Attorney General and Sir John Gorst; presented accordingly, and read the first time; to be read a second time upon Monday next, and to be printed. [Bill 7.]

Whereupon Mr. SPEAKER, in pursuance of the Order of the House of the 19th August, adjourned the House without Question put.

House Adjourned at Five o'clock in the morning.
