HC Deb 10 August 1904 vol 140 cc2-4

Clyde Navigation (Works) Bill; Middlesborough, Stockton-on-Tees, and Thornaby Tramways Bill. Lords Amendments considered, and agreed to.

Leeds Corporation (Consolidation) Bill. Ordered, That so much of the Lords Message [9th August] as relates to the Leeds Corporation (Consolidation) Bill be now considered.— (The Deputy-Chairman.)


On the second paragraph may I take it that it will be understood that this is not to be a permanent Standing Order of the House, but simply an Order to take this Bill over from this session to next session?


I think that is the inevitable consequence of the terms of the Motion. It is to carry over a particular Bill from one session to the next.


I only desire to make that clear.

Ordered, That the Promoters of the Leeds Corporation (Consolidation) Bill, which has been introduced into this House in the present session of Parliament and which has passed this House and been sent to the House of Lords, shall have leave to introduce the same in the next session of Parliament, provided that notice of their intention to do so be lodged in the Private Bill Office not later than Six o'clock on the day prior to the close of the present session.

That such Bill shall be deposited in the Private Bill Office not later than Six o'clock on or before the third day on which the House shall sit after the next meeting of Parliament, with a declaration annexed thereto, signed by the agent, stating that the Bill is the same in every respect as the Bill at the last st ge of the proceedings thereon in this House in the present session.

That the proceedings on such Bill shall be pro forma only in regard to every stage through which the same shall have passed in the present session, and that no new fees be charged in regard to such stages.

That the Standing Orders by which the proceedings on Bills are regulated shall not apply to such Bill in regard to any of the stages through which the same shall have passed during the present session.—(The Deputy-Chairman.)

Ordered, That this Order be a Standing Order of the House.—(The Deputy-Chairman.)

Message to the Lords to acquaint them therewith.

Pier and Harbour Provisional Order (No. 3) Bill. Lords Amendments considered, and agreed to.

Ayr Corporation Tramways Order Confirmation Bill [Lords]; Glasgow Corporation (Sewage) Order Confirmation Bill [Lords]. Considered; to be read the third time to-morrow.
