HC Deb 23 March 1903 vol 119 c1466
SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for the Shipley Division of the West Riding if he will state what course he proposes to take with regard to the Motion standing in his name for Wednesday evening next.

SIR FORTESCUE FLANNERY (Yorkshire, W.R., Shipley)

I had intended to draw attention to the state of the law in regard to trade combinations, as regards both employers and employed, and to invite the House to pass a Resolution in favour of equal treatment, but I find that under the Rules of the House it will be impossible to get an adequate discussion of the Motion, and under the circumstances I propose to postpone the matter until the House has before it the Bill of the right hon. Baronet dealing with the subject.
