§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.876
§ EARL STANHOPE
My Lords, this is a Bill which comes before your Lordships every year. It is merely to bring the Customs Duties in the Isle of Man in line with those imposed in the Finance Act of this country. It is usually brought before the House as soon as the Finance Act has become law, and it confirms the Resolution passed in the Isle of Man, which, otherwise, would have operation only for six months. I think I need say nothing more about the Bill. I beg to move that it be now read a second time.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 2a.—(Earl Stanhope.)
§ On Question, Bill read 2a: Committee negatived.
