§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."
§ Mr. BIRRELL
This Bill includes certain Irish Amendments which should have been inserted in the Courts (Emergency Powers) Act, 1914. That Act does not refer to the Irish Statutes applicable to the occasion. It was thought that the tenant should have the opportunity of showing that his inability to pay was owing to, or had arisen through, the War.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill read a second time.
§ Resolved, "That this House will immediately resolve itself into the Committee on the Bill."1485
§ Bill accordingly considered in Committee, and reported, without Amendment; read the third time, and passed.
