I have been asked by
several members that in order that the private bills on page 18 of the order paper may be referred to the select standing committee on Miscellaneous Private Bills, the second readings
be taken now. Of course this can only be done by suspending the rule with the unanimous consent of the House. Is it the pleasure of the House that the second readings should be taken now of the private bills on page 18? Then, by leave of the House, we will now proceed to take them up.
