§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That, in the case of Massy's Divorce Bill [Lords], Standing Order 204 be suspended, and the time for the Second Reading of the Bill be extended to Wednesday, 7th July."—[The Deputy-Chairman.]
§ The DEPUTY-CHAIRMAN of WAYS and MEANS (Mr. MacLean)
In this case the agent for the Bill, owing to an error, in not allowing for the fact that Sunday did not count in the clear days, omitted to give the necessary length of notice. There was no desire, on the part of the Chairman, or those responsible for the conduct of private business, to take advantage of a purely technical error of that kind, and this Motion was, therefore, put on the Paper.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
