§ MR. CHANNING (Northamptonshire, E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to resolutions of the Trades Union Congress for several years past in support of the Coroners' Inquests (Railway Fatalities) Bill; and whether he will assent to the Second Reading of this Bill, and to its reference to a Select Committee.
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY TO THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. BONAR LAW,) Glasgow, Blackfriars
I can only repeat the answer given to the hon. Member by the President of the Board of Trade on the 2nd May, 1901, in which he intimated that he was not prepared to assent to the Second Reading of this Bill.†
