§ Order for Third Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read the third time."
§ Mr. GRETTON
I do not want to delay the House, but I want to ask one question on finance. It is proposed to issue out of the Consolidated Fund £2,200,000. Does the present situation justify that issue?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Montagu)
It was very difficult to hear what the hon. Member said because of the disturbance in the House. The Bill is being put through in pursuance of an agreement which has already been made and assented to by the Resolution passed by the House. There is nothing in the situation which would justify us in withdrawing from our obligation made with the consent of Parliament.
§ Question put, and agreed to; Bill read the third time, and passed.
