HC Deb 18 February 1898 vol 53 cc1177-9

, who had on the Paper the following Amendment to the Address:— And we humbly express to Your Majesty our regret that the pledge given to the House on the 4th August last by Your Majesty's Government that no step should be taken, and their assurance that no notice could be served before the 1st January, 1898, towards putting the provisions of the Land Transfer Act in force, have been diregarded, and that in contravention thereof a notice was given by Your Majesty's Privy Council on the 26th November last to the London County Council, whereby the express purpose for which that pledge was asked and accepted by the House has been defeated. said: I think the matter that I intended to bring forward by my Amendment is really a very important one, but after the appeal made by the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the House, I feel that I ought to give way, and I beg leave to withdraw my Amendment.
