HC Deb 21 February 1882 vol 266 cc1223-4

Order for Second Reading read.

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


said, he had received an assurance that certain clauses contained in the Bill, against which he had given Notice of opposition, had been withdrawn; and, on that assurance, he had much pleasure in withdrawing his opposition. He could only say that the particular clauses to which he referred had been opposed by him because they related to matters in regard to which he was of opinion that they ought to have the sanction of Her Majesty's Government, and he objected to their being inserted in a Private Improvement Bill.


said, he was authorized to state, on the part of the Corporation of Liverpool, that they were prepared to withdraw the clauses referred to, which related to the employment of young children.


understood that the arrangement for the withdrawal of the clauses in question was assented to by the promoters of the Bill.

Motion agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and committed.
