HC Deb 18 April 1883 vol 278 c585

Order for Second Reading read.


, in moving that the Bill be now read a second time, said, it was a measure to consolidate the Law of Partnership. When it was first introduced it was intended to deal with the two other questions—the registration of firms, and with limited partnerships—but the Select Committee to whom the Bill was referred struck out these two portions of the Bill; and it was now introduced in a form simply to consolidate the present law. That being the case, it need not be discussed, at length now, particularly as he would propose to refer it to the Grand Committee on Trade, or to another Select Committee.


said, the Grand Committee had as much work before it as it could get through this Session.

It being a quarter of an hour before Six of the clock, the Debate stood adjourned till To-morrow.
