HC Deb 10 August 1911 vol 29 cc1321-2

Lords Amendments considered, in pursuance of the Order of the House of 7th August.


I would like to ask Mr. Speaker whether something cannot be done so that we may read these Amendments before they are brought to the Table of the House? Some of us have taken a great interest in this matter. I have been about the House and cannot find that these Amendments are printed. Then I came here, and you, Mr. Speaker, call upon the Clerk, who hurriedly reads the words of the Amendment, the full significance of the meaning of which I defy anyone to understand. It really is not fair. These words, the simplest and the most harmless on the face of them——


Does the hon. Gentleman object?


Yes, I do.


The House has passed an Order that these Amendments should be considered on the day on which the House next sits after such Amendments are sent down to it. Does the hon. Member object now?


Yes, I think I must.

And, the business being opposed, further consideration of Lords Amendments stood adjourned.
