HC Deb 18 March 1891 vol 351 c1346

Order for Second Reading read.

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

(5.29.) MR. KELLY (Camberwell, N.)

I should like to point out what are the provisions of this Bill. The present law provides that our local representatives shall have no interest whatever in the contracts made by the bodies of which they are members. This Bill gives power to County Councillors to make contracts with their own County Councils for the supply of stone and gravel for the maintenance of roads in their districts.

It being half an hour after Five of the clock, the Debate stood adjourned.

Debate to be resumed to-morrow.
