Mr. FIELDING.

As the hon. gentleman has been allowed to give the reasons why ho did certain things, I am at liberty to give the reasons why I made the observation I did. The hon. gentleman had ample time, long before the private members' day was taken by the government, to bring forward this matter, If be desired to treat it as a great and Important matter. I do not undertake to discuss the wisdom or unwisdom of the course he has pursued. As to whether or not he delayed the business of the House, I have nothing further to say than that the record of yesterday's proceedings will speak for itself.
