§ The Chairman of Committees (Lord Aberdare)
My Lords, I apologise for wearying your Lordships with two more Motions, which are similar to those I have been moving in recent days, to allow these Private Bills to continue their passage through Parliament in the next Session.
I beg to move the first Motion standing in my name on the Order Paper.
§ Moved, That the Promoters of the Bill have leave to suspend any further proceedings thereon in this Session, in order to proceed with the Bill in the next Session of Parliament, notice of their intention to do so having been deposited in the Office of the Clerk of the Parliaments;
§ That such Bill shall be deposited in the Office of the Clerk of the Parliaments not later than three o'clock on or before the third day on which the House shall sit after the commencement of the next Session of Parliament, with a declaration annexed thereto, signed by the Agent, stating that the Bill is the same in every respect as the Bill at the last stage of the proceedings thereon in this House in the present Session;
§ That the proceedings on such Bill shall, in the next Session of Parliament, be pro forma only in regard to every stage through which the same shall have passed in the present Session, and that no new fees be charged in regard to such stages;
§ That the Standing Orders by which the proceedings on Bills are regulated shall not apply, in the next Session of Parliament, to such Bill in regard to any of the stages through which the same shall have passed during the present Session.—(Lord Aberdare.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to, and it was ordered that a message be sent to the Commons to acquaint them therewith.
