§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ MR. ALFRED MARTEN,
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.)
MR. ASSHETON CROSS
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.
