HC Deb 19 July 1900 vol 86 c583

Order for consideration, as amended, read.


stated that when this Bill was first brought in it proposed to establish an entirely new principle. Five hundred pounds a year was to be paid to men who, by Act of Parliament, were bound to discharge gratuitously, as public officials, the duty for which that payment was proposed to be made. The clause to which exception was taken having been expunged, there was now no objection to the Bill passing.

Bill read the third time, and passed.
