§ DR. CAMERON (Glasgow, College)
asked Mr. Speaker, Whether the Parochial Boards Bill, the second reading of which was merely negatived on Wednesday without the Amendment "this day six months" being carried, could 1496 be put down again for a second reading?
§ MR. A. SUTHERLAND (Sutherland)
put a similar Question with, regard to the Crofters' Holdings (Scotland) Act (1886) Amendment Bill.
§ MR. SPEAKER
With regard to the Parochial Boards (Scotland) Bill, the second reading of which was negatived on Wednesday last, the position is this—inasmuch as no Amendment was moved "that the Bill be read a second time this day six months," and all the House determined was "that the Bill be not now read a second time," it is therefore competent for the hon. Gentleman to set up the Bill again and put it down for a second reading on a future day. The same Rule applies to the Crofters' Holdings (Scotland) Act (1886) Amendment Bill, the circumstances, if I recollect, being identically the same.
