§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ *MR. CLAUDE HAY
said that he had on the Paper a Motion, "That no Metropolitan Tube Railway Bill will be satisfactory to this House which fails to give effect to the Report of the Joint Committee of Lords and Commons on Underground Railways, 1901, recommending a comprehensive scheme for the relief of the congested districts of the Metropolis and provision for the relief of the most densely populated working-class districts in London now inadequately served." He wished to say that since that Motion had been put on the Paper the promoters of the Bill had supplied information to those interested in this matter, and who were associated with him, that this line would be closely linked up with all the other connected lines in London. He would, therefore, not make his Motion.
