Motion made, and "Question proposed,
That the draft of a Special Order proposed to he made by the Board of Trade
under Section 10 of the Gas Regulation Act, 1920, on the application of the Mayor, Aldermen, and Burgesses, of the borough of Clitheroe, which was presented on the 2nd June and published, be approved."—[Captain Margesson.]
I have no desire to oppose this Motion. No doubt the matter is one of great public utility. But I think that if the Motion is of so useful a character, it is at least due to the House that some representative of the Board of Trade should be here. That is my objection to proceeding with it.
§ Sir JOSEPH NALL
Might I appeal to the hon. and gallant Gentleman? It is simply impeding public business of the hon. and gallant Gentleman to put forward his objection.
§ Ordered, "That the Debate be now adjourned."—[Commander Byres Monsell.]
§ Debate to be resumed To-morrow.
§ The remaining Orders were read, and postponed.
