HC Deb 01 March 1886 vol 302 cc1511-2

Order for Second Reading read.

Bill read a second time.


I beg to move the Motion which stands on the Paper in my name, simply altering the form of it so as to make it in accordance with the Motion just passed by the House in regard to the Lambeth Water Bill.

Bill committed to a Select Committee to consist of Nine Members, Five to be nominated by the House, and Four by the Committee of Selection.

Ordered, That all Petitions against the Bill, presented within the time limited by the Standing Orders, be referred to the Committee; and that such of the Petitioners as pray to be heard by themselves, their Counsel, Agents, or Witnesses, be heard upon their Petitions, if they think fit, and Counsel heard in favour of the Bill against such Petitions. —(Mr. Thorold Rogers.)
