§ MR. W. H. SMITH
asked the First Lord of the Treasury, If, having regard to the great importance of the Medical Act Amendment Bill, as it may affect medical education in this country, he will name an early day for proceeding with the Second Reading?
said, the Representation of the People Bill stood as first Order of the Day to-night to be considered as amended. If that was not concluded in the present Sitting, it would be resumed at 2 o'clock to-morrow; and, in the event of its being disposed of, the House would be asked to take the residue of the debate of the Irish Sunday Closing Bill, and the Medical Act Amendment Bill would be put as the next Order of the Day.
§ DR. LYONS
asked whether the Prime Minister was aware that the Irish Medical Body entertained very serious objection to the Medical Act Amendment Bill?
I am in hopes that the greater part of that objection has been disposed of in a manner satisfactory to the parties concerned. [Dr. LYONS: No, no.] I am not an authority on the subject, and, unfortunately, the Vice President of the Council is not at present in the House.
