§ 3.12 p.m.
§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.
§ LORD SHEPHERD
My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Pakenham, I beg to move that this Bill be read a second time. It is an annual Bill, and, I think, needs no explanation from me. I beg to move that the Bill be now read a second time.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 2a.—(Lord Shepherd.)
§ On Question, Bill read 2a: Committee negatived.
§ Then, Standing Order No. XXXIX having been dispensed with (pursuant to Resolution), Bill read 3a, and passed.
