HC Deb 14 August 1901 vol 99 c860

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Order for Committee be discharged and the Bill withdrawn."

MR. JOHN BURNS (Battersea)

said the Bill was only opposed very mildly by one Member, and he would appeal to the right hon. Gentleman to proceed with it.


said that the Bill was very strongly opposed, and that it was unfair to suggest that such a contentious measure should be proceeded with at that hour.
