HL Deb 22 June 1900 vol 84 cc743-4


Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.


My Lords, this is a very simple Bill. Its object is to obviate the unnecessary examinations which county surveyors in Ireland have to undergo. At the present time, if a county surveyor is transferred from one county to another, he has to pass his qualifying examination a second time. This Bill is drawn at the request of the Civil Service Commissioners for the purpose of obviating this unnecessary examination.

Moved, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(The Earl of Denbigh.)

On Question, agreed to. Bill read 2a accordingly, and committed to a Committee of the whole House on Monday next.

House adjourned at a quarter before Five of the clock, to Mon-day next, a quarter before. Eleven of the clock.
