HC Deb 23 June 1903 vol 124 cc367-8

Considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

[The LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. A. Graham Murray, Buteshire) in the Chair.]

Clause 2—

Amendment proposed— In page 2, line 14, after the word 'article' to insert the words, 'Provided that where articles of the same kind, value, and description are on any particular occasion bought or sold in a lot or parcel it will be sufficient to describe such lot or parcel without describing each of the several articles comprising same.'"—(Mr. MacVeagh.)

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)

said he would move to report Progress. The Amendments were not on the Paper; and the Gentlemen who usually took charge of business after midnight were strangely silent.

MR. NANNETTI (Dublin, College Green)

said he would appeal to the hon. Member not to persist in his Motion. The Bill was urgently demanded in Dublin and Belfast; and all the parties concerned were agreed regarding it.

Bill reported, as amended, to be considered to-morrow.
