§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ The Solicitor-General (Sir David Maxwell Fyfe)
I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time."
This is purely a Consolidation Bill, the object of which is to put into one Statute what is now contained in three separate Acts of Parliament with regard to the subject of war damage. The usual procedure has been followed, and the Joint Committee have recommended that it is a purely Consolidation Bill and does not change the existing law.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill read a Second time.
§ Bill committed to a Committee of the Whole House for the next Sitting Day.—[Major Sir James Edmondson.]
