HL Deb 21 July 1915 vol 19 c576


Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.


My Lords, at this period of the session I understand that a Bill is invariably brought in to continue various laws that would otherwise expire by the mere effluxion of time. The Bill to which I ask your Lordships to give a Second Reading this afternoon continues for the space of one year a variety of Statutes of one sort or another which would otherwise expire on December 30 or in the month of March next.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 2a.—(Lord Hylton.)

On Question, Bill read 2a, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House To-morrow.
