Brought up, and read the First time.

I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time."

This is the usual sort of provision by which the Bill can be made to operate in the Scilly Isles, either in whole or in part, at any time.

Question put, and agreed to.

Clause read a Second time and added to the Bill.

Bill reported with Amendments; as amended (in the Standing Committee and on re-committal), considered.
