§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."
§ MR. PAULTON (Durham, Bishop Auckland)
said, he would like to say a word of explanation. This Bill provided for supervision over children who had deserted from a school, who had found suitable and honest employment—a principle which had already been introduced in some schools. He hoped the Bill would be allowed to go on.
§ SIR F. S. POWELL
said, he could not agree that the Bill was not contentious. He did not object to its Second Reading, but there were some clauses in it which would require careful examination in Committee.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Bill read a second time, and committed for To-morrow.
