§ Order for Second Heading read.
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. J. P. B. ROBERTSON) (Bute)
In moving the second reading of this Bill, I wish to make only one observation. We propose in Committee to bring forward Amendments to simplify and extend the scope of this Bill merely to this extent. Instead of enabling the trustees to go to the Court for powers under this Bill, we propose that the trustees shall have some power without going; to the Court at all; and, in the second place, we propose that clauses should be inserted which will have the effect of ratifying reductions of rent which may have been given by the trustees on their own motion.
§ Motion made, and Question, "That the Bill be now read a second time,"—(Mr. Solicitor General for Scotland,)—put, and agreed to.
§ Bill read a second time, and committed for Monday next.
