HC Deb 15 February 1900 vol 79 cc191-2
MR. T. P. O'CONNOR () Liverpool, Scotland

I desire to make an appeal to the Government not to put down on the Orders any Bills of which there is no prospect or chance of them coming on. There is the Companies Bill, in which many Members are interested. I think it is very hard to keep us here until after midnight when there is no chance of that

Bill coming on, and it might be possible to put this Bill down when there is some likelihood of it being reached.


I am anxious to meet the views of the hon. Gentleman, but, as he is aware, it is extremely difficult to make correct prophecies as to Parliamentary weather. I will do my best to meet the hon. Gentleman's desire.
