HC Deb 03 May 1929 vol 227 c1918

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a Second time."—[Mr. Withers.]


On behalf of the Opposition, I wish to state that we are glad that this Bill has been brought before the House. We regard it as a highly desirable thing that the marriage age should be amended in the way proposed by this Measure.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill read a Second time.

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

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