§ (2.39.) Order for Second Reading read.
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir R. WEBSTER, Isle of Wight)
The object of this Bill is to carry out important alterations and Amendments in consequence of the Middlesex Registry being abolished and transferred to the Land Registry Office. It will provide for the fees, which at present go to the Middlesex Registry Office, going to the Treasury. The Bill has been considered by the Incorporated Law Society, and there is nothing in it except that which will enable an economy to be effected in carrying out the business of the registry. I move that the Bill be read a second time.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(The Attorney General.)
§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)
What are the relations between this Bill and the measure introduced earlier in the Session?
§ SIR R. WEBSTER
A temporary Bill was passed to enable the office to be carried on pending the passing of this measure.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill read a second time, and committed for to-morrow.
