§ MR. SPEAKER
I have to report to the House that a message has been received from the House of Lords to the following effect:—
That they do not insist on certain of their Amendments to the Evicted Tenants (Ireland) Bill to which this House has disagreed; that they do not insist on one of their Amendments, but propose an Amendment in lieu thereof to which they desire the concurrence of this House.
418 That they agree to certain other Amendment's made by this House to the Amendments made by the Lords without Amendment, and to one other Amendment made by this House with Amendments to which they desire the concurrence of this House. That they disagree to certain other Amendments made by this House, for which disagreement they assign their reason.
§ MR. BIRRELL
said there was nothing in the Amendments which had been made in another place to the Commons Amendments which need occupy their time or prevent their agreeing to them. They related entirely to the machinery of the Bill, which, be its merits or its demerits what they might, they otherwise loft as it was. Therefore, he invited the House to agree to the Lords Amendments.
Lords' reason for disagreeing to certain Amendments made by this House, and Lords Amendment instead of the Amendment to which this House hath disagreed, and Lords Amendments to Commons Amendments to Lords Amendments, to be considered forthwith—(Mr. Birrell.)
§ Lords' reason and Amendments considered, and agreed to.
