§ On the Motion for the Second Reading of this Bill,
§ *THE SECRETARY TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. T. W. RUSSELL,) Tyrone, S.
said that he could do that in a few words. A Debate took place in Committee of Supply in the Session of 1894–95 on a sum of £1,800 charged for the maintenance of a quarantine station near Portsmouth. This station was for plague and yellow fever. One disease was extinct and the other was very rare, and an undertaking was given that a Bill should be brought in to abolish the station, putting things under the port sanitary authorities.
§ Read 2° and committed for Monday next.
