THE CHAIRMAN OF COMMITTEES (THE EARL OF ONSLOW)
My Lords, there are a number of Bills in regard to which I have to ask your Lordships to dispense with Standing Order No. 105. Except in the case of the Stockton-on-Tees Corporation Bill we have been waiting for the Attorney-General's Report. Bills cannot be read a second time before that Report is received, and therefore I am asking your Lordships now to dispense with the Standing Order. The Stockton-on-Tees Bill has been held up for the convenience of Lord Chesham, who has new withdrawn his opposition to the Bill. I therefore move that Standing Order No. 105 be considered in order to its being dispensed with in respect of the Brills I have mentioned in order that they may be read a second time.
§ Moved, That Standing Order No. 105 be considered in order to its being dispensed with in respect of the said Bills. —(The Earl of Onslow.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
