HC Deb 13 June 1876 vol 229 c1783

Order for Second Reading read.


in moving that the Bill be now read a second time, explained that it was intended to amalgamate the lists of voters for municipal and Parliamentary elections, so that one list would suffice. By that means there would be a large saving in the 168 boroughs which would be affected by the measure.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second, time."—(Mr. Alfred Marten.)


did not oppose the second reading, but said it was probable he might have to suggest a modification in some of the clauses.

Motion agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and committed for Monday next.
