HC Deb 11 June 1901 vol 97 c67

Mr. SPEAKER laid upon the Table Report from the Examiners of Petitions for Private Bills, That, in the case of the following Bill, referred pursuant to the Order of the House of the 9th July, they have made the following Special Report:

LOCAL GOVERNMENT PROVISIONAL ORDERS (No. 7) BILL.—If this Bill is intended by the Order of the House of the 9th July to be treated as a Private Bill in respect of the Amendments introduced in Committee in the Confirmation Bill, the Standing Orders have not been complied with, inasmuch as no notice has been given of the powers sought by Clause 2 of the said Bill, as amended in Committee.

But the Standing Orders do not contemplate the examination of Confirmation Bills by the Examiners in regard to any requirements other than those contained in Standing Orders 38 and 39, compliance with which has been already proved.



Ordered, That the Report be referred to the Select Committee on Standing Orders.
