MR. WATT (Glasgow, Camlachie)

asked the President of the Board of Trade, When he hopes to be able to proceed with the Electric Light Amendment Bill in this House, which has been introduced into the House of Lords by Lord Houghton, on behalf of the Government?

THE PRESIDENT (Mr. MUNDELLA) (Sheffield, Brightside)

, in reply, said, that the Electric Light Bill of the Government had been introduced in "another place," and with two other Bills had been referred to a Select Committee of that House. It was impossible to say when the Bill would reach this House.
