§ Order of the Day for the House to be put into Committee (on re-commitment), read.
§ THE EARL OF REDESDALE (CHAIR-MAN of COMMITTEES)
said, in deference to the wish of the Government, he had taken out of the Bill everything relating to the Metropolis, which was to be provided for by another Bill introduced on this subject by his noble Friend (Earl Beauchamp). He had also taken out of the Bill those parts open to objection on the ground that they interfered with local Acts. It would also be provided that the Bill would come into operation on the 1st of January next.
§ House in Committee accordingly.
§ Bill reported without Amendment; Amendments made; and Bill to be read 3a on Friday next; and to be printed as amended. (No. 117.)
