§ Considered in Committee.
§ [Captain BOURNE in the Chair.]
§ Clauses 1 to 10 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
§ A new Clause stood upon the Order Paper in the name of Lieut.-Colonel MOORE:
§ (Leases of Crown land in Regent Street and Langham Place.)
§ Lieut.-Colonel MOORE
If it is the general wish of the Committee that this should not be moved, I will not do so. It is my wish that the Bill as a whole should pass, but had my Clause been called I should have drawn attention to the situation in Regent Street. In order not to delay the proceedings I shall not raise that matter now.
190 Schedules agreed to.
Preamble agreed to.
Bill reported, without Amendment.
Motion made,That the Bill be now read the Third time."—(King's Consent signified.)Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read the Third time."
§ Mr. DEPUTY-SPEAKER (Captain Bourne)
If the hon. Member takes objection to the Third Reading, it cannot be taken now.
§ 11.56 p.m.
§ Mr. ELLIOT
May I beg the hon. Member not to press his objection? This Bill will enable a lot of building to be undertaken and that will mean employment.
§ Mr. ELLIOT
I do not wish to press the hon. Member unduly, but I would 191 remind him that this concerns the question of finding accommodation for a number of civil servants and servants of the Crown, and it is a Measure which will enable a deal of employment to be given.
§ 11.57 p.m.
§ Mr. KELLY
I did not say a word on the Committee stage, though I did wish to refer to one or two of the Clauses. My action is not preventing the demolition of Montagu House or the houses in Richmond Terrace. I think we need a little more explanation before this Measure passes through the House at this late hour of the night.
§ It being after Eleven of the Clock, and objection being taken to further Proceeding, the Debate stood adjourned.
§ Debate to be resumed To-morrow.
