HL Deb 07 May 1908 vol 188 cc384-5

Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.


My Lords, this Bill is intended to reproduce, without alteration, the existing statute law relating to companies in the United Kingdom now contained in the Companies Acts, 1862 to 1907, and certain other amending Acts. Together with the Post Office Bill, to which your Lordships have already given a Second Reading, this Bill will be referred to a Joint Committee of both Houses. I therefore hope your Lordships will give the Bill a Second Reading.

Moved, "That the Bill be now read 2a."—(The Earl of Granard.)

On Question, Bill read 2a.

House adjourned at twenty minutes before Five o'clock, till Tomorrow, half-past Ten o'clock.
