HL Deb 14 December 1925 vol 62 c1357

Order of the Day read for the House to be put into Committee on re-Commitment of the Bill (which was reported last Thursday, with Amendments).


My Lords, in moving that the House do resolve itself into Committee on this Bill, I beg to remind your Lordships that in July last, when this Bill was under consideration by this House, it was arranged that a Second Reading should be given to the Bill on condition that, it was not sent to a Select Committee until after the adjournment. I am glad to say that since that time an agreement has been arrived at which has proved satisfactory to all the three parties concerned. I do not intend to trouble your Lordships with the details of that agreement unless you would like further information, in which case I should be glad to give it. Lord Harris has, in consequence, withdrawn his proposed Instruction, and there is no opposition to the Bill. I beg to move.

Moved, That the House do now resolve itself into Committee.—(The Earl of Plymouth.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.

House in Committee accordingly:

[The EARL OF DONOUGHMORE in the Chair.]

Amendments proposed by the Committee made.
