HC Deb 15 February 1881 vol 258 cc1833-4

Order for Second Beading read.


in moving that the Bill be now read a second time, said, that its object was to provide for the better education of blind and deaf-mute children. Hon. Members who were Members of the last Parliament would be familiar with the provisions of the Bill; and it was therefore unnecessary that he should take up the time of the House by referring to them at length. He believed the Bill had been so drawn as to meet the objections which, at different times, had been urged against previous measures. He was not aware that there was any opposition to the present Bill, except such as might be fairly and readily met in Committee.

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

Motion agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and committed for Friday 25th March.

House adjourned at a quarter before Two o'clock till Monday next.
