§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ (12.5.) MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, South)
This Bill has been on the Paper almost from the beginning of the Session, and has never been printed. I wish to ask if Members are to be kept here night after night watching a Bill which has not been printed?
§ (12.6.) MR. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)
As a point of order, Sir, may I ask whether a Bill can be read a second time without having been printed?
§ MR. T. M. HEALY
I would point out that some Acts have been passed 1576 into law without ever having been printed, such as the Bill relating to the naturalisation of Prince Henry of Battenberg.
§ Second Reading deferred till Friday next.
