§ Considered in Committee, and reported, without Amendment.
§ On Motion, "That this Bill be now read a third time."
§ MR. W. BROMLEY DAVENPORT (Cheshire, Macclesfield) rose to a point of Order. He asked whether a Third Reading could be taken immediately after Committee except with the consent of the House. He objected to it, because it was becoming a matter of custom to take the Third Reading directly after Committee. The objection on this occasion was very general.
§ *MR. SPEAKER
It has been a very general practice, unless there has been some special reason why the Bill should not be disposed of. It is a question for the general sense of the House.
THE PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Sir WALTER FOSTER, Derbyshire, Ilkeston)
I am willing to postpone the Third Reading till to-morrow if the hon. Member objects.
§ Motion postponed.
