§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading, read.
§ LORD BASING
, in moving that the Bill be now read a second time, said, it proposed to confer powers on municipal authorities, in new localities, to prevent the bringing forward of houses so as to mar or interfere with the frontage of streets. The Bill, he believed, had the approval of the Local Government Board, and it had passed the House of Commons.
§ Moved, "That the Bill be now read 2a."—(The Lord Basing.)
said, the Local Government Board did not propose to offer any objection to the Bill. On the contrary, they thought it a reasonable measure, which carried into effect what, until a recent decision, was believed by all parties to be the state of the law.
§ Motion agreed to; Bill read 2a accordingly, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House on Tuesday next.
