HC Deb 22 February 1897 vol 46 c854

Ordered, That, in the case of the Coventry Electric Tramways Bill, Standing Orders 204 and 235 be suspended, and that the Bill be now Read a Second time.—(Dr. Farquharson.)


had given notice of the following Motion:— That all Petitions praying to be heard against Clauses 48 and 49 of the Bill, and so much of the preamble as relates thereto, presented five clear days before the meeting of the Committee be referred to the Committee; and that the Petitioners may be heard by themselves, their Counsel and Agents on their Petition against the Bill. He said: As our case is stronger against the other two Bills than is our case against this Bill, and as we have from the company an offer of compromise, which is meant to be sufficient, though we are not quite satisfied that it is, I think I had better reserve my Motion until the other Bills come on.

Bill read a Second time.
