Order read, for resumed Adjourned Debate [13th February], "That the Bill be now read a second time."

Question again proposed.

Debate resumed.

MR. CALDWELL () Lanarkshire, Mid

I beg to move that the House do now adjourn. The business was principally Supply, which is now exhausted, and it is generally understood that on such occasions further business is not taken. I move, Sir.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House do now adjourn."— (Mr. Caldwell.)

MR. STRACHEY () Somersetshire, S.

I appeal to my hon. friend not to oppose this Bill coming before the House, as it was understood it would be considered to-night. I appeal to the House to give it Second Heading now, as the measure has the unanimous approval and support of Friendly Societies throughout the country.

MR. MALCOLM () Suffolk, Stowmarket
