HC Deb 16 May 1892 vol 4 cc940-1

Order for Second Reading read.

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

MR. SHAW LEFEVRE (Bradford, Central)

I have opposed the Bill brought in by the Alexandra Palace Company on previous occasions, on the ground that they proposed to relieve themselves from the obligation not to build on the park, and I should oppose this Bill because it contains a clause in the same direction, but that I understand the promoters of the Bill propose to modify the clause to meet objections, and I, therefore, do not oppose this stage of the Bill. I further understand that the Company are negotiating with the London County Council for the purchase of the park.

MR. JOSEPH HOWARD (Middlesex, Tottenham)

Yes, that is so.

Motion agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and committed.
