HC Deb 11 March 1880 vol 251 c898

MATTER considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)


said, he could not find that there was any such Bill in the Vote Office; and it was, therefore, impossible that it should be read a second time. He looked for an explanation as to what the Bill was.


said, he must point out to the hon. Member for Gloucester that he was under a wrong impression. There was a Private Bill before the House authorizing the Corporation of Liverpool to raise a loan, with the consent of the Treasury. The Committee on that Bill would sit to-morrow; but it was necessary before that Committee sat that a Resolution should be passed enabling the Committee to sit.

Resolved, That it is expedient to authorise a charge of seven shillings and sixpence for every full sum of one hundred pounds of Consolidated Stock, and also for every fractional part of one hundred pounds of Consolidated Stock, which may be issued to any holder by the Corporation of Liverpool within seven days after the issuing of such Stock, to be paid to the Commissioners of Inland Revenue in lieu of Stamp Duty on Transfers of Consolidated Stock, Stock Receipts, Coupon Certificates, and Coupons.

Resolution to be reported To-morrow, at Two of the clock.

House adjourned at Two o'clock.
