Order for Second Reading read.
I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time."This Bill does no more than I said it would when the House gave me leave to introduce it on 9th March. I sincerely hope that the House will fulfil the pledges which it has given over the last 25 years to establish the principle of equal pay.
I beg to second the Motion.
It would be a very great pity if we proceeded with the Second Reading of this Bill without a little more explanation.
It being Four o'clock, the debate stood adjourned.
Debate to be resumed upon Friday, 21st May.
