THE EARL OF ONSLOW:
My Lords, the Motion standing in my name regarding Private and Provisional Order Confirmation Bills is one usually moved before the recess, in order that the adjournment of the House may not interfere with the progress of private Bills.
Moved, that Standing Orders Nos. 92 and 93 be suspended; and that the time for depositing petitions praying to be heard against Private and Provisional Order Confirmation Bills, also the time for depositing documents relating to any Order under the Private Legislation Procedure (Scotland) Act, 1899, which would otherwise expire during the adjournment of the House at Easter, be extended to the first day on which the House shall sit after the recess.—(The Earl of Onslow.)
On Question, Motion agreed to.
