Local Government Provisional Order (No. 23) Bill,

The Lords communicate that they have come to the following Resolution, to which they desire the concurrence of the Commons, namely: That it is desirable to suspend any further proceedings on the said Bill until the next Session of Parliament.

Edinburgh and District Water Order Confirmation Bill [ Lords],

Read the first time.

This Bill is a Bill of some importance. Unfortunately, the message from the other House did not reach this House last night in time for it to be put upon the Paper. I hope that in the circumstances the House will agree that the Bill should be passed through its various stages without delay. I propose, therefore, to move that the Bill be read a second time, and that it be considered and read the third time.

Motion made, and Question, "That the Bill be now read a second time," put, and agreed to.

Bill considered.

May I ask whether this is a Water Bill, and if it is for extensive works, whether care has been taken to see that housing and hospital accommodation is arranged?

I think the Bill meets the hon. Member's views on that question.

Thanks.

Bill reported without Amendment, read the third time, and passed.
