HL Deb 03 August 1905 vol 151 cc45-6

House in Committee, according to Order.

(The Earl of ONSLOW in the Chair.)


stated that there were a large number of Amendments to this Bill, which was a private Member's Bill and had come from the other House. It would take a long time to deal with the Amendments now, and he would suggest that, with the approval of His Majesty's Government, they should be agreed to en bloc now, and that tomorrow the Bill should be recommitted and the Standing Orders suspended, so that all the remaining stages might be taken at the one sitting. Unless this were done, he was afraid there would be no chance of passing the Bill.


intimated the willingness of the Government to assent to this course.


then formally moved that the Amendments on the Paper (which were of a drafting character) be agreed to.

On Question, Amendments agreed to.

Standing Committee negatived. The Report of Amendments to be received To-morrow: and Standing Order No. XXXIX. to be considered in order to its being dispensed with; and Bill to be printed as amended. (No. 164.)
