§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ MR. CHANNING
I should like to ask whether it is the intention of the Government to consider this, because we ought to have some notice. There are some very important changes suggested.
§ MR. T. W. RUSSELL
That question had better be directed to the Secretary of State for the Home Department.
§ MR. JOHN BURNS (Battersea)
May I appeal to the Under Secretary for the Home Department to put down this Bill at such a date as would enable the various local authorities throughout England and Wales who are interested in some of its provisions to suggest to him some simple but necessary Amendments which are contemplated. If any attempt is made to get it through to-night or to-morrow night, or any night this week, I should, in the interests of one district very much concerned in it, oppose it; but, I believe, if he will consult the local authorities he may get the Bill through this session.
§ Second Reading deferred till Thursday.
