§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Lord John Manners.)
§ VISCOUNT ENFIELD
asked, whether the noble Lord would consent to adopt the area of the Metropolitan Board of Works for this Bill instead of that of the Metropolitan Police Districts?
§ LORD JOHN MANNERS
had given that suggestion his careful consideration, and was sorry to say that it would be fatal to the objects of the measure. He would, however, be happy to listen to any Amendments which might be moved in Committee.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Bill read a second time, and committed for Thursday, 19th March.
