HC Deb 11 June 1896 vol 41 c932

On the Motion, "That this House do now adjourn,"

MR. W. J. GALLOWAY (Manchester, S. W.)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury whether he could allow some opportunity for the discussion of the Friendly Societies Bill and the Collecting Societies Bill.


said he should be extremely glad to give the opportunity his hon. Friend desired, but he might remind him that the Friendly Societies Bill was a purely consolidating Bill, and hardly required discussion; and that the Collecting Societies Bill was one which would not meet with much opposition. He was afraid he could not hold out any very great hopes of discussion.

MR. W. E. M. TOMLINSON (Preston)

said there were one or two points in the Friendly Societies Bill which were not quite of a consolidating character, and he hoped some opportunity would be given for discussing those.

House adjourned at Five minutes after Twelve o'clock.
