. In the House of Commons yesterday the disorderly and obstructive conduct of Mr O’Donnell, M.P. for Dungarvan, when the House was in Committee on Saturday last, was brought up for discussion.

A motion was, therefore, put and carried in the House yesterday that he should be suspended for a fortnight in consequence of continued obstruction to the Irish Repression Bill. The system of voting urgency has been revived and adopted with the view to expedite the passage of the measure through the House.
