Alert me about debates like this
Order read for resuming Adjourned Debate on Question [29th March], "That the Bill be now read a Second time."
Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House will immediately resolve itself into the Committee on the Bill."—[Sir A. Boscawen.]
It is rather a strong order to ask us to take the Committee stage without our having had an opportunity of putting down a single Amendment to the Bill. As far as I remember, the Bill is not a very serious Bill, but—
The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Sir A. Boscawen):
If any objection is taken I will not pursue my proposal.
I think we ought not to take the Bill now. It puts a larger liability on the people of this country.
Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
