HC Deb 14 July 1931 vol 255 cc426-8

Order for Second Reading read.

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Herbert Morrison)

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

This is an agreed Bill. It is in general demand. I will formally move the Second Heading, in the hope that the House will be good enough to put the Bill through all its stages to-night.


I do not wish to make a speech, but I wish to thank the Government. By bringing in this repeal Measure, they have remedied an injustice which was probably never intentional. I am sure that all those associations who have asked me to take up this matter on their behalf will be very gratified if the Bill is put through all its stages as soon as possible.

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

Bill accordingly considered in Committee.

[Sir ROBERT YOUNG in the Chair.]
