HC Deb 07 March 1898 vol 54 c944

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, That the Bill be now read a second time.

MR. D. CRILLY (Mayo, N.)

I object.

MR. H. E. KEARLEY (Devonport)

I would ask my hon. Friend, as a personal favour, not, to object to this Bill, which, I assure him, is one of those small Measures which cover a much-needed reform.

DR. C. K. D. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid.)

I also would appeal to my hon. Friend not to stand in the way of this Bill. Although it does not affect Irish pharmacists, I believe the Bill will do justice all round, and I may say that I remained in the House till this hour tonight merely to help, to the best of my ability, the progress of this Measure.


After that appeal I feel that I cannot persist in my objection.

Read a second time, and committed for Thursday, 17th March.
