HC Deb 08 August 1881 vol 264 c1343

Order for Second Reading read.


, in moving that the Bill be now read a second time, said, the object of the Bill was to enable the Patriotic Fund Commissioners to give up one of their schools for which they had not sufficient money, and to give the Government more control over the expenditure of the fund. He did not think any question would arise as to the Bill; but in Committee he would give all necessary information.

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


said, that perhaps the right hon. Gentleman would inform the House whether, out of the funds they were about to save, they intended to endow any institution for Catholic orphans?


said, the school which had been kept on by the Patriotic Fund Commissioners was a boys' school at Wandsworth.

Motion agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and committed for To-morrow.
