HC Deb 12 July 1900 vol 85 c1301

Order read for resuming Adjourned Debate on Question [5th July], "That this House doth agree with the Lords Amendments in page 6, line 21, to leave out from '1889,' to end of Clause 9."

Question again proposed.

Debate resumed.

.MR. RECKITT (Lincolnshire, Brigg)

Before this Bill goes through, I should like to state that the matter raised in this House last week with regard to the position of two of the employees of the company has been settled. The engineer is to receive £340 as compensation from the water company, while the collector is to continue in his post and become the servant of the urban district council. This being satisfactory to both parties, I think it light to put the House in possession of the terms of settlement.

Question put, and agreed to.

Subsequent Amendment agreed to.
