HL Deb 06 August 1855 vol 139 c1856

Moved to resolve— That the Island of Tobago Loan Bill was necessarily introduced at a late Period, inasmuch as the Bill from the Colonial Legislature, on which the same is founded, was only received Three Weeks ago, and the said Bill, though the Provisions of the same are required by the Condition of the Island, cannot receive the Royal Assent unless this Bill be passed; and consequently the Circumstances which render Legislation on the Subject Matter of the said Bill expedient are of such Urgency as to render the immediate Consideration of the same necessary.

Agreed to; Bill read 2a (according to Order), and committed to a Committee of the Whole House To-morrow.
