§ LORD HERSCHELL
, in moving the Second Reading of this Bill, said it had been promoted by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. The Secretary to the Society was shortly to be examined before the Committee which was considering the Infant Life Protection Bill, and it was thought desirable that they should have the proposals made by the Society before them. His only object in asking for the Second Reading of the Bill was to move immediately afterwards that it be referred to the Select Committee to which the Infant Life Protection Bill had been referred.
Read 2a (according to Order), and referred to the same Select Committee to which the Infant Life Protection Bill [H. L.] stands referred.
