HL Deb 30 April 1929 vol 74 cc257-8

Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.


My Lords, I beg to move the Second Reading of this very short Bill, which consists of one clause only, in a suitably short speech. The object of the Bill is to enable the Pharmaceutical Societies of Northern Ireland and of Great Britain to have reciprocity and to register each other's members. The two societies are anxious that this Bill should be passed. The

'three pounds,' provided that the Treasury give their consent."—(Lord Arnold.)

On Question, Whether the said new clause shall be there inserted?—

Their Lordships divided:—Contents, 16; Not-Contents. 44.

Resolved in the negative, and Amendment disagreed to accordingly.

Northern Ireland Legislature have empowered their society to extend their hospitality to members of the British society, but the British society has no power at present to extend a reciprocal hospitality, and therefore this Bill has been introduced to give power to the British society to register duly qualified members of the Northern Ireland society and to give reciprocal advantages. The Northern Ireland society does suffer certain hardship from the fact that the Colonies, although they are able to recognise members of that society, still are not anxious to do so until the Northern Ireland society has been recognised by Parliament and the society here.

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

On Question, Bill read 2a and Committed to a Committee of the Whole House.
