HC Deb 12 March 1891 vol 351 cc744-5

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed," That the Bill be now read a second time."

MR. BOULNOIS (Marylebone, E.)

I desire, on behalf of the Southwark and Vauxhall Water Company, to say that this Bill is only one to raise additional capital for the purpose of constructing storage reservoirs and filter beds. If it is thought necessary by my right hon. Friend the President of the Local Government Board to send the Bill to the Hybrid Committee which is to sit on the general question of the Water Supply of the Metropolis, and not, as in an ordinary case, to a Select Committee, the company will offer no opposition.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and committed to the Select Committee on the London Water Commission Bill.
