HC Deb 29 June 1909 vol 7 c205

Bill presented to confirm certain Provisional Orders of the Local Government Board relating to Maryport, the Hitchin Joint Hospital District, and the Whaley Bridge Joint Sewerage District.—[Mr. Masterman,]

Read the first time.

The DEPUTY-CHAIRMAN of WAYS and MEANS (Mr. J. Caldwell) moved, "That, in the case of the Local Government Provisional Orders (No. 9) Bill, Standing Order 193A be suspended, and that the Bill be read the first time."


At the present moment no one knows what is the Standing Order. The Standing Orders are very extensive, and without some explanation we cannot expect to know what the suspension means. I beg to suggest that the Motion of the suspension of the Standing Order stand over for a day in order that we may see really what it means.


I will put the Motion down for to-morrow (Wednesday).
