HC Deb 15 July 1889 vol 338 c481

Order read for the consideration of Lords' Amendment.

* THE PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Michael Hicks Beach,) Bristol, W.

I hope the House will agree to take this Bill now for this special reason, that with the repeal of the London Coal Duty, certain legislation as to the weighing of coal falls to the ground, and it is important that legislation should be substituted in order that the public may not be defrauded.

Lords' Amendment considered, and agreed to.
