§ 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.
1397 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.
