§ [SECOND READING.]
§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.
THE EARL OF JERSEY
My Lords, this Bill provides that where any person is convicted of an offence against the Wild Birds Protection Acts, 1880 to 1896, the Court may, in addition to any penalty 1506 that may therein be imposed, order any wild bird, or wild bird's egg, in respect of which the offence has been committed, to be forfeited and disposed of as the Court shall think fit. The measure has the support of the Home Office, and I trust that your Lordships will give it a Second Reading.
Bill read 2a, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House on Monday next.
