§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR
My Lords, I beg leave to introduce a Bill to provide for the holding of elections of members or officers of certain bodies in cases where elections have been postponed under the Chartered and Other Bodies (Temporary Provisions) Acts, 1939 and 1941; for validating elections held after such postponement; for amending the said Acts and removing doubts arising thereon; and for purposes connected with the matters aforesaid. I beg to move that the Bill be now read a first time.
