§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.
§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR OF IRELAND (Lord ASHBOURNE)
My Lords, this is a very short Bill, to remedy certain technical matters in reference to the administration of the Local Government (Ireland) Act of 1898. They are merely questions of detail, and are explained fully in the Memorandum which has been circulated with the Bill, to which I trust your Lordships will give a Second Reading.
§ Moved. That the Bill be now read 2a.—(Lord Ashbourne.)
§ On Question, agreed to; Bill read 2a accordingly; Committee negatived; then (Standing Orders Nos. XXXIX. and XLV. having been suspended) Bill read 3a, and passed.
