§ The CHAIRMAN of WAYS and MEANS (Mr. James Hope)
I think, perhaps, I ought to explain that this Bill is identical with the five Bills which passed the Second Reading last week. It so happens that for technical reasons of procedure the Scottish part of this company's proposals has to be presented in a separate Bill, but the provisions are identical in purpose.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill read a Second time, and referred to the Examiners of Petitions for Private Bills.
