§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."
§ Mr. ESSLEMONT
May I appeal to my hon. Friend to withdraw his objection? I think that Welsh Members might allow Scottish Members to deal with their own Private Bill legislation without interfering in this way.
§ Objection withdrawn.
§ Bill read a second time, and ordered to be considered to-morrow (Thursday).
§ "To confirm certain Provisional Orders made by the Board of Trade under the Gas and Water Works Facilities Act, 1870, relating to Fleetwood Gas and Long Eaton Gas," presented by Mr. PRETYMAN; read the first time; referred to the Examiners of Petitions for Private Bills, and to be printed. [Bill 4.]
§ "To confirm certain Provisional Orders of the Local Government Board relating to Bradford, Burton-upon-Trent, Buxton, St. Helens, and Warrington," presented by Mr. HAYES FISHER; read the first time; referred to the Examiners of Petitions for Private Bills, and to be printed. [Bill 5.]
