§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ MR. HALDANE (Haddington)
said, he wished to explain with regard to this 1213 Bill that he intended to withdraw Clauses 1, 8, and 9, which had given rise to much opposition on the part of various hon. Members. He hoped that under these circumstances the House would agree to the second reading. The Bill had been carefully considered by a Select Committee of the House of Lords, and he believed had received the assent of all Parties. He would move the second reading.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Mr. Haldane.)
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. STUART-WORTLEY) (Sheffield, Hallam)
said, he thought it right that the House should have a little time to consider the matter, and he therefore hoped that the hon. and learned Member would postpone the second reading.
§ MR. HALDANE
said, he had communicated with the right hon. Gentleman the Attorney General on the subject, and had gathered that the second reading would be agreed to. He would, however, postpone it until to-morrow.
§ Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
§ Second Reading deferred till To-morrow.
