§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed "That the Bill be now read a Second time."
§ Sir EVELYN CECIL
I am in charge of this Bill, and in view of what has taken place I think the proper course is to ask 1568 the leave of the House to withdraw the Bill. Perhaps I might at the same time express the hope that any negotiations, whenever they ensue, will be conducted in a mutually friendly spirit.
§ Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
§ Bill withdrawn.
