Alert me about debates like this

As amended, considered.

Lieut.-Colonel J. WARD:

Several Amendments stand on the Order Paper in my name in reference to this Bill, Mr. Speaker, but if you will allow me, I think we might dispense with them. While still protesting against the added burdens imposed on the people whom I represent, I have received the following telegram: Waterworks Bill. Agreement reached with company. Please withdraw notice of Motion.—Sharpley, Town Clerk, Stoke-on-Trent. After receiving that communication, and in view of the fact that there has been some arrangement made between the corporation, representing the people, and the water company, I beg leave to withdraw my opposition.

Bill to be read the Third time.
