§ *Sir CHARLES DILKE
asked what course the Government proposed to take with regard to this measure. The hon. Members from whom some objection had been expected had intimated their intention of not opposing the Second Reading, and therefore it rested with the Government to say what course should be taken.
§ The UNDER SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Jesse Collings, Birmingham, Bordesley)
was understood to say that he would make inquiries in regard to the matter.
§ Second Reading deferred till Thursday next.
