HL Deb 30 June 1898 vol 60 cc611-2

Order for Second Reading read.


My Lord, I have to ask your Lordships to give a Second Reading to this Bill, which, has passed the House of Commons. The object is to place solicitors in Ireland on exactly the same footing as their professional brethren in England. The provisions of the Bill are matters of detail with which I will not trouble your Lordships. The Bill has received the consent of the legal authorities in Ireland, and it is identical with the Bill whch passed your Lordships' House in 1896.


My Lords, I have only to say that this Bill has the Government's entire approval.

Question put.

Bill read a second time, and committed to a Committee of the whole House.
