§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ (5.26.) MR. W. ABRAHAM (Glamorgan, Rhondda)
It is a source of very great disappointment to many Members in the House, and more so to the mining population throughout the country, that no time has been allowed for the discussion of the Second Reading of this most important matter. Reserving, then, our observations for another occasion, I now content myself with asking the House to give the Bill a Second Reading.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Mr. W. Abraham.)
§ (5.26.) MR. PICKARD (York, W.R., Normanton)
At such an hour as this the only course open is to move the Adjournment of the Debate.
§ Debate adjourned till Wednesday, 15th April.
