THE CHAIRMAN OF COMMITTEES (THE EARL OF DONOUGHMORE)
My Lords, I beg to move the Motion which stands on the Paper in my name. It is the ordinary Motion which is moved at this stage of the Session. I would only say that I think it is specially important this Session when, as we all know, it is the desire of His Majesty's Government to bring the Session to an end earlier than usual.
§ Moved, That no Private Bill brought from the House of Commons shall be read a second time after Tuesday the 26th of June next:
§ That no Provisional Order Confirmation Bill brought from the House of Commons shall be read a second time after Tuesday the 26th of June next:
§ That when a Bill shall have passed this House with Amendments these Orders shall not apply to any new Bill sent up from the House of Commons which the Chairman of Committees shall report to the House is substantially the same as the Bill so amended:
§ That this House will not receive any Petition for a Private Bill later than Tuesday the 1st of May next, unless such Private Bill shall have been approved by the High Court of Justice; nor any Petition for a Private Bill approved by the High Court of Justice after Thursday the 3rd of May next:
§ That this House will not receive any report from the Judges upon Petitions presented to this House for Private Bills after Thursday the 3rd of May next.—(The Earl of Donoughmore.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
§ Ordered, That the said Orders be printed and published, and affixed on the doors of this House and Westminster Hall.
