§ [THIRD READING.]
§ Order of the Day for the Third Reading read.
§ THE LORD PRIVY SEAL (The Marquess of RIPON)
My Lords, I have had personal communications with my right hon. friend Mr. Morley, and I have to tell the noble Viscount opposite that he feels compelled to say that he cannot consent at this period of the session to any change in this measure. I would, therefore, beg the noble Viscount not to press the Amendment which he proposed, as it would obviously be fatal to the passing of the Bill.
§ Moved, "That the Bill be now read 3a"—(The Marquess of Ripon.)
§ On Question, Bill read 3a and passed.
