§ Brought from the Commons; read 1a; to be printed; and to be read 2a on Thursday next.—(The Lord Balfour of Burleigh.) (No. 181.)
§ LORD TWEEDMOUTH
May I ask the noble Lord the Secretary for Scotland when he proposes to take the Second Reading of this Bill? It would be convenient to Scotch Peers that no delay should occur, and I would suggest, if I might, that the Second Reading be taken on Thursday.
§ * THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Lord BALFOUR of BURLEIGH)
I understand that the printers will be able to circulate the Bill to-morrow, and, under those circumstances, and being desirous of meeting the convenience of noble Lords opposite, I have no objection to taking the Second Reading on Thursday. I should otherwise have put it down for Friday.
