HC Deb 15 July 1898 vol 61 cc1191-2

On the Order for the consideration of the Clontarf and Hill of Howth Tramroad Bill [H.L.],

MR. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.)

I have an Amendment down which I have been forced to withdraw, owing to the objection taken by the noble Lord, who said it was against the Standing Orders. I wish to say here, however, that I have withdrawn the Amendment against the wishes of the promoters and without their assent. I think it was in the public interest that such an Amendment should be carried, and I very much regret that it was not, because it would have given the people of Clontarf and Howth a road of which they are very much in need, and I trust that some time or another it may be in the power of the county council to make such a road.

Consideration, as amended, deferred till Monday next.
