HC Deb 22 February 1907 vol 169 cc1215-6
*MR. LEIF JONES (Westmoreland, Appleby)

moved the Second Reading of the Liquor Traffic (Local Veto) Bill, which he said was carried by the large majority of 227 last session. The Prime Minister had spoken in favour of it, and practically all the members of the Government had voted for it. He hoped that either facilities would be given for the Bill, or that its provisions would be embodied in the coming Licensing Bill. He begged to move.

Motion made and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Mr. Leif Jones.)

SIR F. BANBURY (City of London)

said the hon. Member had given a very singular reason for asking the House to give assent to the Bill. It was that the: Bill had already been passed last session, and therefore it ought now to be passed at once without discussion.


I did not say that.


rose in his place, and claimed to more, "That the Question be now put," but Mr. Speaker withheld his assent, and declined then to put that Question.

And, it being Five of the clock, the debate stood adjourned.

Debate to be resumed upon Friday next
