§ Sub-section (1) of Section 1 of the Parliament Registration Act, 1916, shall have effect as if seven years and six months were substituted therein for five years and eight months; and Section 1 of the Parliament and Local Elections Act, 1917, is hereby repealed.
§ Sir F. BANBURY
I have a very important Amendment to propose. I do not know whether the Government will persist in going further with this matter just before eleven o'clock. It is quite impossible to discuss it to-night. The life of 544 Parliament has already been extended two years, and it is improper that the Government should prevent—
It being Eleven of the clock, the Chairman left the chair to make his Report to the House.
§ Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Friday.
§ The remaining Orders were read, and postponed.
§ Whereupon Mr. SPEAKER, pursuant to, the Order of the House of 12th February, proposed the Question, " That this House do now adjourn."
§ Adjourned accordingly at One minute after Eleven o'clock.
