§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ MR. CRAWFORD (Lanark, N.E.)
I do not think there is any objection to the Second Reading of this Bill, which merely applies to Scotland the provisions of the Day Industrial Act for England.
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Sir C. J. PEARSON,) Edinburgh and St. Andrews Universities
The Bill deals with a matter which comes under the cognizance of the Home Office, and as I think has already been explained, the Secretary of State has under his consideration a measure which includes the proposals to be found in this Bill. Pending the introduction of that Bill I understood the Second Reading of this was to be indefinitely postponed.
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. STUART WORTLEY,) Sheffield, Hallam
I hope the hon. Member will postpone the Bill for a few days. The Bill my right hon. Friend hopes to introduce is in an advanced stage of preparation.
§ Second Reading deferred till Friday next, at Two of the clock.
