HC Deb 21 March 1895 vol 31 cc1573-4
MR. G. C. T. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in reference to the Conciliation (Trade Disputes) Bill, introduced by the Government, which was down amongst the Orders of the Day, whether, as the Government had blocked the other Bills dealing with the same subject, facilities would be given for the consideration of all those Conciliation Bills.


I stated last night, in reply to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for London University, that I was quite willing to allow the Second Reading of that Bill as soon as the Government Bill was read a second time, and that they should go together to the same Grand Committee. I have no objection, at all to the third Bill.


asked whether the right hon. Gentleman would give facilities for the consideration of the Bill at reasonable hours?


I think I have answered that question. I gave a promise the other day to assent to the Second Reading of the Bill, as a matter of course, if the Government Bill got its Second Reading.
