HC Deb 29 March 1889 vol 334 cc1147-8
MR. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention had been called to the fact that at a recent special general meeting of delegates of the Royal Liver Friendly Society the following rule was passed:— If any member should act in a manner which, in the opinion of the Committee of Management, is hurtful to the interests and well-being of the Society, the Committee of Management shall intimate in writing to the said member, warning him against such conduct; and if, after such notice, such member still persists in such conduct, the full Committee of Management shall, after calling him before them, or giving him an opportunity of attending before the Committee, have power to expel him from the Society, and thenceforth after such expulsion his interest or benefit in the Society shall cease. Whether this rule has been registered; if not, whether it has been sent to the Registrar for registration; and, whether it is now under consideration, or whether registration has been refused?


I am informed that a complete amendment of rules understood to contain the regulation referred to in the honourable Member's question was received at the office of the Registrar of Friendly Societies this morning, but was returned for the correction of an informality.
