HC Deb 04 April 1894 vol 22 cc1378-9

Order for Second Reading read.

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


said, it was impossible for him to allow the Bill to be read a second time when they had less than two minutes in which to consider it. It had protection written all over it, and he was told it would be quite impossible to carry out its provisions in London, and in that case it would deceive consumers, besides which there were other objections.

It being half-past Five of the clock, the Debate stood adjourned.

Debate to be resumed upon Monday next.
