HL Deb 08 August 1917 vol 26 c237


Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.


My Lords, this is a Bill which is usually brought in at this period of the session, and the measures affected by it are set down in the Schedule. I do not think that your Lordships will expect me to take up the time of the House by reciting those measures. I beg to move the Second Reading.

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.
