HC Deb 27 June 1899 vol 73 cc870-1

Considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

Clause 1:—

MR. CALDWELL (Lanark, Mid.)

I have an Amendment to move to Clause 1, page 1, line 7, to insert the words "and of every special Act passed." I am sorry the President of the Board of Trade is not here to defend the Bill. I should like to know why it is that the draftsman has altogether left out of view, in saying that the provisions contained in the Schedule to the Act shall be incorporated with every Provisional Order, the fact that these very powers may be granted by a Private Bill——

It being Midnight, the Chairman left the Chair to make his Report to the House.

Committee report Progress; to sit again To-morrow.
