HL Deb 23 March 1888 vol 324 cc150-1

Order of the Day for the Second Reading, read.

Moved, "That the Bill be now read 2a."—(The Viscount Cranbrook.)


said, that in the drafting of the Bill the funds of the Duchy of Lancaster had been placed within his disposal as Lord Chancellor. It was too late to alter this now; but as soon as possible the fund would be restored to the name of the noble Duke (the Duke of Rutland) the Chancellor of the Duchy.

Motion agreed to; Bill read 2a accordingly; Committee negatived: Then Standing Order No. XXXV. considered (according to order), and dispensed with: Bill read 3a, and passed.
