§ [SECOND READING.]
§ Order of the day read for adjourned debate on the Motion for the Second Reading.
§ THE LORD PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL AND PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (The Marquess of LONDONDERRY)
My Lords, the House will remember that a few days ago my noble friend Lord Avebury moved the Second Reading of this Bill, but at the request of the noble Marquess the Leader of the House kindly consented to allow the debate to be adjourned until to-day. I hardly like to ask the noble Lord to again adjourn the debate, but if he can see his way to postpone it until Tuesday of next week I can assure him, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, that we shall be very grateful.
§ LORD AVEBURY
; My Lords, after the appeal which has been made to me by the noble Marquess I feel that it would be discourteous on my part were I to decline to meet his wishes. I therefore move, with the permission of the House, that the debate be adjourned till Tuesday next.
§ Moved, "That the debate on the Motion for the Second Reading be adjourned till Tuesday next."
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
