§ Order for Consideration of Lords Amendments read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the said Amendments be now taken into Consideration."
§ MR. CHARLEY
called attention to the fact that the Amendment moved by the hon. and learned Member for Marylebone (Mr. T. Chambers), contrary to the understanding arrived at, did not appear in the Bill, and he moved that the Lords' Amendments be considered that day month.
§ Amendment proposed, to leave out the word "now," and at the end of the Question to add the words "upon this day month."—(Mr. Charley.)
said, the Amendments introduced in the other House were mere verbal Amendments, and hoped the House would not stultify itself by rejecting a Bill which it had so lately passed.
§ MR. T. CHAMBERS
said, he was sorry the Government had not adopted his Amendment. The Lords' Amendments had not essentially altered the Bill, and he hoped the hon. and learned Member for Salford (Mr. Charley) would not press his Amendment.
§ Question put, "That the word 'now' stand part of the Question."
§ The House divided:—Ayes 48; Noes 5: Majority 43.
§ Main Question put, and agreed to.
§ Lords Amendments considered, and agreed to.
