Brought up, and read the First time.


I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time."

This Clause is in substitution for Clause 27. It provides, inter alia, that the Commissioners can borrow money for the purpose of paying off existing loans.

Clause read a Second time, and added to the Bill.
