House of Lords (UK) Debates — Commons Amendments
BRITISH NORTH AMERICA BILL — COMMONS AMENDMENTS
Commons Amendments considered (according to Order.)
LORD LYVEDEN said, he desired some information with regard to a collateral subject—the Imperial guarantee of the loan for constructing the Intercolonial Railway.
THE DUKE OF BUCKINGHAM said, that a Resolution on the subject would be laid before the House of Commons within a week, and it was proposed to defer the progress of the present Bill until the discussion had taken place on that Resolution.
LORD REDESDALE asked whether the guarantee was to be permanent or for a term of years?
THE DUKE OF BUCKINGHAM said, that he must defer his answer to these questions of detail until a Bill founded on the Resolution should have been laid on the table of the other House.
Amendments agreed to.
House adjourned at half past Five o’clock, to Thursday next, half past Ten o’clock.
