§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading, read.
§ LORD PLAYFAIR
said, this was a purely technical Bill. It had passed through the other House without opposition and without a single Amendment, and he hoped their Lordships would give it a Second Reading.
§ Moved, "That the Bill be now read 2a."—(The Lord Playfair.)
§ Motion agreed to; Bill read 2a accordingly, and committed to a Committee of the whole House.
