§ House in Committee (according to order); Bill reported without amendment.
§ EARL STANHOPE
My Lords, all those who are affected by this Bill are anxious that it should pass through all its stages in your Lordships' House as soon as possible, and therefore I asked your Lordships to agree to the suspension of the Standing Order in order that the Bill should be taken through all its remaining stages to-day.
Then, Standing Order No. XXXIX having been suspended, Bill read 3a, and passed.
