§ On the Order being read for the Second reading of this Bill,
§ MR. T. LOUGH (Islington, W.)
expressed the hope that the hon. Member would withdraw his objection and allow the Bill to be read a Second time. It was entirely of a non-party character, the result of a report presented in the time of the late Government, and was, he hoped, the first of some much-needed 647 beneficent legislation on behalf of the London cabmen. ["Hear, hear!"]
§ SIR JOHN BRUNNER (Cheshire, Northwich)
appealed to the hon. Member for North Donegal to allow London to have a little Home Rule.
§ Second Reading deferred till To-morrow.
