§ On the Order for Committee on this Bill,
THE CHAIRMAN OF COMMITTEES (The EARL of MORLEY)
said that, as he would not have an opportunity of speaking in Committee, he wished to say a few words in regard to the Amendments on the Paper. The Amendments of the Earl of Camperdown covered, to a large extent, the suggestion he (the Earl of Morley) ventured to make on the Second Reading of the Bill; and although they did not, by simply requiring the Order to be laid on the Table of the House, give such full protection as the passing of Provisional Orders would do, he was on the whole fairly satisfied with the provision. He had great sympathy with the Amendment of Lord Welby. He did not think it was fair that municipalities or county councils should have no chance of placing their case—if they opposed the Orders of the Board of Trade—before Parliament. He trusted the House would adopt some, if not all, the Amendments on the Paper.
