§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ (12.33.) THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. P. B. ROBERTSON,) Bute
I would suggest that the Second Reading of this Bill should be postponed for a few days. I entirely approve of the Bill; it restores the Local Government Act to the position 880 in which the Bill was originally presented to the House; but the view of the Government was overborne from influential quarters of the House. As, however, the Bill was only presented on the 10th of June, I think it would be better to allow a little more time, and I shall be glad if the hon. Member will put it down for an early day. So far as I can see, the Government will offer no opposition to it.
§ Second Reading deferred till Tuesday next.
