HL Deb 08 March 1906 vol 153 c572

My Lords, I think it due to your Lordships that I should offer an explanation with regard to the Bill for the Amendment of the Public Health Acts, the Second Reading of which stood in my name for to-day. The Local Government Board are anxious to examine the measure, and, therefore, I have deferred asking the House to read the Bill a second time until this day fortnight.
