HC Deb 23 March 1900 vol 81 cc299-300

Considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

[Mr. GRANT LAWSON, Yorkshire, N.R., Thirsk, in the Chair.]

Question again proposed, "That it is expedient to authorise the payment, out of moneys to be provided by Parliament, of such Expenses as the Treasury may certify to have been necessarily incurred by the General Medical Council under any Act of the present session, to secure the better training of Midwives, and to regulate their practice."—(Sir John Gorst.)

MR. DALY (Monaghan, S.)

said he was sure that the Government were not in such a hurry with the Bill that they need rush it through at that late hour. Nothing would be lost if the Bill stood over in order that it might be considered by hon. Members. No explanation had been given regarding it, and money should not be voted without every hon. Member understanding what it was voted for. He did not believe there was any great necessity for the Bill. If there were it would have been introduced years before and passed. He hoped the Bill would not be preceeded with under the circumstances.

It being Midnight, the Chairman left the Chair to make his Report to the House.

Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Monday next.

Adjourned at two minutes after Twelve of the clock, till Monday next.
