HC Deb 07 May 1925 vol 183 cc1157-8W

asked the Minister of Health whether he has received any representations from boards of guardians in the Metropolitan area asking that the per

will arrange that the Second Reading of the Rating and Valuation Bill is not taken until after Whitsun?


In view of the fact that the Bill, in its main outlines, follows the draft Bill which was circulated to local authorities and other interests concerned some 18 months ago, I do not think that it is necessary to defer the Second Reading of the Bill as suggested.
