§ [SECOND READING.]
§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.
THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (The Earl of DONOUGHMORE)
My Lords, this is substantially the same Bill as that which your Lordships passed last year, and it embodies the Amendments that I was glad to make to meet the views of my noble friend Lord Monkswell. I do not think it is necessary to explain the Bill at length to your Lordships, having done so last year, and I will therefore content myself with formally moving that it be read a second time.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 2a.—(The Earl of Donoughmore.)
§ On Question, Bill read 2a and committed to a Committee of the Whole House on Tuesday next.
