HC Deb 05 August 1918 vol 109 c946W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether it is intended to pass the Midwives Bill through this House before the Adjournment?


When the Bill which was introduced in another place on behalf of the Lord President of the Council reached this House it was held that some of the Clauses infringed the privileges of the House, and that as a consequence it could not make further progress. I hope, however, that it may be possible to introduce a similar Bill into the House when the House reassembles after the Recess.
