HC Deb 01 June 1956 vol 553 c654

Order for Second Reading read.

2.31 p.m.

Sir Hugh Linstead (Putney)

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

This is another old charity, dating back to the days of Henry VI. The charities are in difficulties about the repair and upkeep of their fabric, and desire to be able to use some of their funds to a greater extent than at present for that purpose. The scheme has, again, been widely publicised, and no criticisms or comments have been received. For that reason I commend the Bill to the House.

Mr. Humphrey Atkins (Merton and Morden)

I beg to second the Motion.

Question put and agreed to.

Bill accordingly read a Second time.

Bill committed to a Commitee of the whole House —[Sir H. Linstead.]

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