HL Deb 23 March 1910 vol 5 cc496-7

My Lords, I have to ask your Lordships to suspend Standing Orders No. 92 and 93 in order to enable Private Bills to be read a second time after the Easter recess. The time would otherwise expire during the period over which your Lordships would adjourn.

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 winch the House shall sit after the Recess.—(The Earl of Onslow.)

On Question, Motion agreed to and ordered accordingly.
