§ Remaining Clauses agreed to.
§ LORD HERSCHELL
I have received communications containing suggestions for Amendments to the Bill from persons interested in Savings Banks in more than one place. One communication I only received this morning. There will be an opportunity for considering the suggestions for Amendments to be made when the Bill is in Grand Committee. I propose that it shall be considered by the Grand Committee; and as it will not be ready in the ordinary course until about the 28th instant, that will give ample time for the consideration of the suggestions which have been already made and any other suggestions which may be received, for those who have been instrumental in bringing them forward to formulate them for consideration by the Grand Committee.
§ Bill re-committed to the Standing Committee.
