§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.
§ 12.18 p.m.
THE EARL OF LUCAN
My Lords, this Bill is purely a domestic matter of the House of Commons, it does not impose any charge of any kind on public funds, and it is not a Government measure. I presume, therefore, that your Lordships will not wish to discuss it. I beg to move that the Bill be now read a second time.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 2a.—(The Earl of Lucan.)
§ On Question, Bill read 2a; Committee negatived.
§ Then, Standing Order No. XXXIX having been suspended in pursuance of the Resolution of the House of Monday last:
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 3a.—(The Earl of Lucan.)
§ On Question, Bill read 3a, and passed.
