HL Deb 05 August 1914 vol 17 cc386-7

My Lords, in moving that this Bill be read a first time I venture to ask that to-morrow it should be allowed to proceed through its remaining stages. It did not meet with any opposition in another place, and we are apprehensive of the possibility that there may be grave danger of starvation in some of our larger centres of population, and if this Bill becomes law it would be more easy to deal with school children. I hope the Bill will be printed and in your Lordships' hands in plenty of time before I ask you to pass it through its remaining stages to-morrow.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 1ª.—(Earl Beauchamp.)

On Question, Bill read 1ª; to be printed; and to be read 2ª To-morrow (The Earl Beauchamp). (No. 214.)
