§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ * THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. E. STANHOPE,) Lincolnshire, Horncastle
In moving the Second Reading of this Bill I would only remark that the sooner it is passed the sooner will it be possible to remedy the insanitary condition of certain barracks.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."1748
§ DR. TANNER
This Bill is one that is brought in at a late hour, and I have to state that certain military gentlemen with whom I am acquainted have asked me to give attention to the matter, and have furnished me with certain details. The reason why I now object to proceeding with the measure is that I think it ought to be taken at a time when it can be discussed. I hope, therefore, that instead of trying to push it through at this juncture it will be put down for the first day of the reassembling of the House, when we may have a full opportunity of considering its details.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill read a second time, and committed for Monday 2nd June.
