§ Considered in Committee.
§ (In the Committee.)
§ Clauses 1 to 3 agreed to.
§ Clause 4.
§ MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)
We made no opposition to the previous Amendments, but to this and subsequent Amendments the Chamber of Commerce 1576 at Belfast a body fully competent to judge of such matters strongly object. Can the Attorney General see his way to accept the opinion of these representatives of the mercantile community at Belfast?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. MADDEN,) Dublin University
I cannot at present say I am in a position to withdraw the Amendment of which I have given notice; perhaps it will be convenient at this point to report Progress. The Amendments I have put down have been very carefully considered, and they embody the views of the Government. They have been submitted to various authorities, and I shall be glad to consider the view of the Belfast Chamber of Commerce.
Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Chairman do report Progress, and ask leave to sit again."—(Mr. Madden.)
§ MR. SEXTON
If we resume Committee this day week I hope, meantime, the right hon. Gentleman will consult the Chamber of Commerce?
§ MR. MADDEN
Certainly I will send a copy of the Bill with my Amendments to the Belfast Chamber of Commerce.
Motion agreed to.
Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Monday next.
