* LORD HARRIS
My Lords, I have to move that the Order of the 9th of March last, which provides that no Provisional Order Confirmation Bill brought up from the House of Commons shall be read a second time after June 27th, be dispensed with, and that this Bill be read a second time. This action is not necessitated through any neglect on the part of the Local Government Board. The time in which a petition could have been presented against the Bill in the House of Commons was exhausted, and those who would have been the petitioners proceeded by private motion in the House of Commons, and the matter was referred to a Hybrid Committee.
§ Moved, That the Order of the 9th March last, "That no Provisional Order Con-"firmation Bill brought from the House "of Commons shall be read a second time "after Tuesday, the 27th day of June "next," be dispensed with, and that the Bill be now read 2a; agreed to; Bill read 2a accordingly, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House Tomorrow
