Resolutions read a second time.

First Resolution agreed to.

Mr. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.)

I beg to give notice that when this Bill comes on for Second Reading I will move an Instruction asking that the principle of the loan shall be so extended as to enable the colonies to participate in its responsibilities, and calling attention to the fact that while bushmen from the colonies are receiving 5s. a day, Scottish, Irish, and English soldiers only receive 1s. 3d.

Bill ordered to be brought in by Mr. James William Lowther, Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Mr. Hanbury.
