HC Deb 25 May 1882 vol 269 c1692

Order for Second Reading read.


, in moving that the Bill be now read a second time, explained that the object of the measure was to supply several omissions in the Act of last Session. In that Act several points had not been dealt with. They had been left over, owing to pressure of Business, until they could be thoroughly considered; and it was proposed now to deal with them in this Bill. He would suggest that the Bill should be read a second time, and then referred to a strong Select Committee, in order that it should be fully and carefully considered before being submitted to the House.

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


said, he hoped the measure would be read a second time, and that it would be referred to a Select Committee, as there were points in it which required very serious consideration.

Motion agreed, to.

Bill read a second time, and committed to a Select Committee.
