§ Considered in Committee.
§ (In the Committee.)
§ Clause 1:—
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. JOHN BURNS,) Battersea
appealed to the hon. Gentleman to withdraw his objection.
§ MR. JOHN BURNS
said the two Members who put Amendments down to this Bill had agreed to withdraw their Amendments. It was practically an agreed Bill, and he hoped the hon. Gentleman would not persist in his action.
§ SIR A. ACLAND-HOOD (Somersetshire, Wellington)
also appealed to the hon. Gentlemen to withdraw, and observed that it was a Bill which must be 1292 passed. There was no Party feeling whatever about it.
§ MR. CLAUDE HAY
said naturally the appeal of his right hon. friend and also that of the right hon. Gentleman opposite would have great weight with him, but as a matter of principle he objected to any Bill being taken after eleven o'clock.
And, it being after Eleven of the clock, and objection being taken to further Proceeding, the Chairman left the Chair to make his Report to the House.
§ Committee report Progress; to sit again To-morrow.
