HC Deb 13 June 1902 vol 109 cc675-6

Considered in Committee.

(In the Committee).

Clause 1:—

(5.25.) MR. CALDWELL (Lanarkshire, Mid)

said his hon. friend the Member for the Wisbech Division, who had left the House, asked him to move the Amendment standing in his name that— In line 15 of Clause 1, the word 'three' should be inserted in place of 'four.' Under the principal Act of 1878, the sum mentioned as necessary for the founding of a Bishopric was £3,500. This Bill proposed £4,000, and he thought they were entitled to ask the promoters of the Bill what was the necessity for the change.

Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Monday next.
