HC Deb 31 October 1918 vol 110 c1742

Order for Second Reading, read.


I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a second time."

This is a Bill promoted by members of the Dublin Stock Exchange for the purpose of removing an anomaly which relates to their Exchange. Under an Irish Act of 1799 there was a restriction imposed as to brokerage or commission on the sale or purchase of any Government stock or securities, and that applies only to the Dublin Stock Exchange. Recently it became necessary to make a change, and it was found that that could not be done except by Statute. The Bill does not affect anyone except those licensed under the particular Act which created the Dublin Stock Exchange, and it provides that the rate may be fixed by rules made by the Exchange and to be approved of by the Lord Lieutenant. I understand Members for Dublin are quite willing to agree with the passage of this Bill and that there is agreement about it for both benches from Ireland.

Question put, and agred to.

Bill accordingly read a second time.

Resolved, "That this House will immediately resolve itself into the Committee on the Bill.—[Mr. J. Hope.]

Bill accordingly considered in Committee, and reported, without Amendment; read the third time, and passed.

The remaining Orders were read, and postponed.
