§ [SECOND READING.]
§ Order of the day for the Second Reading read.
§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR
My Lords, this is a Bill of very small scope. 1063 Its object is merely to amend the Judicature Acts, 1873 to 1894, with respect to the persons in whom the power of making Rules of Court under those Acts is vested, by enabling a provincial solicitor to be added to the Rule Committee. It is very desirable that we should invoke the assistance of someone who has country experience. This is a Bill of very modest pretentions, and I hope your Lordships will give it a Second Reading.
§ Moved, "That the Bill be now read 2a."—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Bill read 2a, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House on Thursday next.
§ Polling Districts (County Councils) [H.L.] Bill; Polling Arrangements (Parliamentary Boroughs) Bill [H.L.]. House in Committee (according to order); Bills reported without Amendment; Standing Committee negatived; and Bills to be read 3a on Thursday next.
