HL Deb 09 August 1855 vol 139 c2025

Moved to resolve— That the Diseases Prevention Bill was unavoidably delayed in its Passage through the House of Commons until the Provisions of the Nuisance Removal Bill now before this House were fully determined on, with which Measure the aforesaid Bill stands in necessary Connection; and inasmuch as the Provisions thereof are formed to protect the Country against the Spread of any formidable Epidemic, Endemic, or contagious Disease similar to that with which it was afflicted last Year, the Circumstances which render Legislation on the Subject Matter of the said Bill expedient are of such Urgency as to render the immediate Consideration of the same necessary.

Agreed to; Bill read 2a (according to Order); and committed to a Committee of the whole House To-morrow.
