HL Deb 28 February 1889 vol 333 c550

Order of the Day for the Second Reading, read.


My Lords, in moving the Second Reading of this Bill, I need trouble the House with only a few observations. The Bill was passed in your Lordships' House in 1883, in 1886, in 1887, and again in last year. It is unnecessary, therefore, for me on this occasion to discuss the main provisions of the measure. There appears to be some matters upon which there is a difference of opinion; but your Lordships will no doubt feel that those matters will be better discussed when we are in Committee on the Bill. My Lords, I move the Second Reading of the Bill.

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

Motion agreed to; Bill read 2a accordingly.
