§ [SECOND READING.]
§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.
§ LORD HYLTON
My Lords, this Bill, to which I ask your Lordships to give a Second Reading this afternoon, is one for authorising the issue of the New War Loan. It has passed through all its stages in another place, and being a purely financial measure perhaps your Lordships will allow me to content myself with formally moving the Second Reading.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 2a—(Lord Hylton.)
§ On Question, Bill read 2a.
§ Committee negatived and Bill to be read 3a To-morrow.
