§ House in Committee (according to Order): Bill reported without amendment.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (THE EARL OF DERBY)
I would ask your Lordships to allow me to pass this Bill through its remaining stages now. It is a Bill brought in at the request of the House, and there has been no Amendment of any sort or kind. I want to get it speedily through your Lordships' House, because there are a great many gentlemen who would be invaluable as Deputy Lieutenants who are barred until the Bill passes.
§ Moved (Standing Order No. XXXIX having been suspended), That the Bill be now read 3a.—(The Earl of Derby.)
§ On Question, Bill read 3a and passed, and sent to the Commons.
