§ The CHAIRMAN of WAYS and MEANS (Mr. Emmott)
The alterations of Standing Orders which I have to propose are merely to bring the trolley 166 vehicle system within the purview of our Standing Orders. Bills for a trolley vehicle system are presented which do not now come under our Standing Orders, and it is obviously necessary that they should do so. I desire to make one or two alterations in the proposals with reference to Standing Orders 10 and 13a by adding in each case to the words on the Paper the words "except that part of it which refers to plans deposited."
I beg to move, "That the Standing Orders relating to Private Business be amended as follows:—
Standing Order 1 (Definition of 1st class Bills) Part I., after the words 'stipendiary magistrate, or any public officer—payment of,' insert the words 'trolley vehicle system.'"
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Further Amendments made:
§ In Part II., after the words "Tramroad and Motor Road," insert the words, "the term 'trolley vehicle system,' means a system of traction whereby vehicles propelled on roads by mechanical power conveyed by overhead wires trolleys."
§ In Standing Order 10 (Posting of Notices in case of Tramway or Underground Railway Bill) at end add the words "This Order shall apply to a trolley vehicle system in like manner as to a tramway, except that part of it which refers to plans deposited."
§ In Standing Order 13a (Notice to Owners and Lessees of Railways, Tramways, or Canals, crossed, affected, or interfered with by proposed tramway) at end add the words "This Order shall apply to trolley vehicle systems in like manner as to tramways, except that part of it which refers to plans deposited."
§ In Standing Order 25a, after the word "tramway" ["laying down a tramway"], insert the words "or trolley vehicle system."
§ After the word "tramway" ["of the proposed tramway"], insert the words "or trolley vehicle system."
§ After the word "office" ["at that office," insert the words "and in the Private Bill Office of the House of Commons."
§ In Standing Order 33 (Deposit of Private Bills at Treasury and other Public Departments), paragraph (4), after the word "tramway," insert the words "trolley vehicles."167
