§ SECOND READING.
§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."
§ MR. JOHN ELLIS (Nottingham, Rushcliffe)
I appeal to the Government not to go on with this Bill tonight, as there are a number of hon. Members who are interested and desire to say something upon it.
§ SIR RICHARD TEMPLE (Worcester, Evesham)
I join in making this appeal, as I know there are important Amendments down which hon. Members desire to urge.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
May I also appeal to the hon. Gentleman to allow the Bill to pass this stage? I gather that the objection is not to the principle of the Bill, but to details. If the hon. Gentleman and my hon. Friend will agree to the Bill being now read a second time, I will put down the Committee stage for Monday.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Bill read a second time, and committed for Monday next.
