My Lords, I trust that in bringing forward the Women's Suffrage Bill a second time, I did not wish to take any of your Lordships by surprise. After the opinion expressed as to No. 1 Bill, which I supposed to be still in existence—which it was until the decision on the Chairman of Committees' Motion—and being still a Bill in 2 progress, I withdrew my Notice for next Session, and said I should try to carry it.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Viscount CROSS)
I am sure that no one would suppose that the noble Lord had any desire to take your Lordships by surprise. No one, I am sure, wishes to treat the House with more I consideration than the noble Lord.
My Lords, I observe that when the Honourable Colonel Cody, commonly called "Buffalo Bill," came here and signed his autograph, he added these words, "True alike to friends and foes." As I have many friends and foes in this House, I shall follow his example.
