MR. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he can state when the Companies Bill is likely to be taken, and how he proposes to deal with the Amendments which have been forwarded to him.
§ MR. RITCHIE
I am unable to say when the Bill will be taken. As to the second question as to how I propose to deal with the Amendments, I think it would be inconvenient, if not disorderly on my part, to attempt to give the long answer now which such a question involves.
