§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ MR. H. E. KEARLEY (Devonport)
§ MR. W. O. CLOUGH (Portsmouth)
I hope the hon. Member will not persist in his objection. That is a purely administrative Bill. I understand the point my hon. Friend desires to raise. If my hon. Friend will take my word for it, I myself intend to raise that point on the Estimates.
§ DR. C. K. D. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)
I also object. It is not a mere matter of opinion, but I hold it to be my duty to object.
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. J. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN,) Worcestershire, E.
I hope the hon. Members will not object. The point was raised the other night, and I think it was agreed that the Bill should be passed, and that the question hon. Members desire to raise could properly be discussed on the Estimates.
§ MR. KEARLEY
The Bill is far too important to be taken now.
§ Second Reading deferred.
