§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir W. ROBSON, South Shields),
in moving the Second Reading, said that this was a small Bill to amend the Registration Acts in connection with certain proceedings on appeals. The Bill had been made necessary owing to the alteration of the termination of the long vacation from 24th to 12th October. The dates in the Registration Acts were fixed with reference to the date at which the Michaelmas sittings began. The advancing of the date to 12th October made inappropriate nearly all the dates under the Registration Acts with regard to appeals.
§ Motion made and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Sir W. Robson.)
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill read a second time and committed to a Committee of the Whole House for to-morrow.—(Mr. Joseph Pease.)
