§ [BILL 211.] COMMITTEE.
§ Order for Committee read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the Chair."—(Mr. E. Stanhope.)1141
§ SIR CHARLES W. DILKE
said, that this was a measure of too great importance to be considered at that period of the Sitting, as it dealt not only with ships in Indian waters, but with Indian ships in all waters, even in the waters of this country. He, therefore, begged to move the adjournment of the debate.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Debate be now adjourned."—(Sir Charles W. Dilke.)
MR. F. STANHOPE
hoped the objection would not be pressed. The Bill was a very simple one, and it had been discussed the other evening on the second reading. Hon. Members would have the opportunity of moving Amendments in Committee, and he hoped that the time they had at their disposal now might be devoted to its consideration.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Debate adjourned till Thursday.
