HC Deb 20 May 1895 vol 33 c1612
MR. JAMES LOWTHER (Kent, Thanet)

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he would make two distinct Bills of this Bill, inasmuch as the first part of the Bill was opposed, while the second was not opposed?


said, the objection to the first part of the Bill came from a very limited district indeed, and he took it that the enormous preponderance of opinion in the fishing industry was in favour of the first part.


asked whether the right hon. Gentleman could say when he intended to take the Bill?


said, that, of course, as there was some opposition to a part of the Bill it could not be taken after 12 o'clock. The right hon. Gentleman was understood to say further that he could not then state when the Bill would be taken.

MR. HARRY FOSTER (Suffolk, Lowestoft)

Is this a Bill which ought to pass its Second Reading without discussion?


I think I have expressed my feeling quite enough on this matter.
