HC Deb 09 November 1920 vol 134 c1028W
Captain BOWYER

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he will secure that a considerable period, say six months, elapses between the First and Second Readings of the Bill which will deal with the alteration of the present Poor Law system, so as to enable all those affected and interested thoroughly to discuss the Bill?


It would certainly be right that there should be a considerable interval between the introduction and the Second Reading of such a Bill.
