HC Deb 26 April 1991 vol 189 cc1396-7

Order for Second Reading read.

Mr. James Arbuthnot (Wanstead and Woodford)

On behalf of my hon. Friend the Member for York (Mr. Gregory), I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

Question put and agreed to.

Madam Deputy Speaker

Order. Before the hon. Gentleman continues, I must tell him that, although I have no power to prevent him from doing so, Mr. Speaker has made it clear on many occasions that he very much disapproves of the House taking a Committee stage without notice. I hope that that has been noted.

Bill committed to a Committee of the whole House. —[Mr. Arbuthnot.]

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