§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."
§ *THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. H. H. FOWLER,) Wolverhampton, E.
said that this Bill was simply to cure an error in the present sanitary law in London. They ought to be very much indebted to the London County Council for introducing it, and he hoped the House would allow it to pass.
§ VISCOUNT CRANBORNE (Rochester)
Does the right hon. Gentleman give us an assurance that the Bill does nothing more than to remedy a defect in the law?
§ MR. J. STUART (Shoreditch, Hoxton)
Speaking for the London County Council, I can assure hon. Members that that is so.
THE MARQUESS OF CARMARTHEN (Lambeth, Brixton)
said, he objected to this Bill. He had been asked to put his name on the back of the Bill, but on consulting some of his friends he was strongly advised not to endorse it. However, having been assured that it made no alteration in the law, he would withdraw his objection.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Bill read a second time, and committed for Thursday, 24th August.
