HL Deb 04 June 1888 vol 326 c1006

Order of the Day for the Third Reading, read.


said, that his attention had been called to a criticism which appeared in the newspapers of that morning which complained that insufficient opportunity had been given for consideration and for the introduction of Amendments.

Third Reading put off to Tuesday the 12th instant.
