HL Deb 28 April 1879 vol 245 c1216

said, that the noble Viscount (Viscount Lifford) had a Motion on the Paper, for which no day had been named, for the re-committal of the Letterkenny Railway Bill. It seemed to him that the Motion was one which ought either to be made at once or withdrawn. There was no reason why it should be hung up indefinitely.


begged the noble Earl the Chairman of Committees to make allowance for the painful position in which he was placed, He had given Notice of the Motion under a painful sense of duty; and he was sure the noble Earl, if he went a little deeper into the matter, would be the first to see the necessity for it. He would fix a day for the Motion to-morrow.
