HC Deb 15 March 1895 vol 31 cc1243-4

The House went into Committee on this Bill.

(In the Committee.)

Clause 1 was agreed to.

On Clause 2,

MR. CRILLY (Mayo, N.)

said, he knew nothing about this Bill, and therefore moved to Report Progress.

MR. A. C. MORTON (Peterborough)

appealed to the hon. Member not to press the Motion, as the Bill was not in any sense a contentious one.


I have such a high appreciation of the honesty, democracy, and decency of my hon. Friend that I withdraw the Motion.

The other Clauses were agreed to, and, the House having resumed, the Bill was read 3°.
