HL Deb 20 April 1899 vol 70 cc12-3

Motion made, and Question proposed— That this Bill be read a second time."— (The Lord Chancellor.)


My Lords, this is a Bill which passed through the House without the slightest opposition last Session, but which was lost owing to there not being time to get it through the other House. The object of the Bill is to amend the law relating to charges on land, by giving fuller effect to the policy of the Land Charges Registration and Searches Act, 1888, under which purchasers of land are protected from certain risks against which they formerly had no protection.

Question put.

Bill read a second time.
