INTERPRETATION BILL, 1923.

Before entering upon the Orders of the Day, there is a report from the Special Committee appointed to consider the Interpretation Bill. It will be necessary to decide whether the Bill, as amended, is to be printed, and to fix a date for its consideration on the Report Stage.

As Chairman of the Special Committee that sat, I move to report progress. The Special Committee on that Bill met this morning and made certain amendments, which are now in the copy of the Bill laid on the Table. I move that progress be reported and that the Bill be printed and circulated.

Question: "That the Bill, as amended in Committee, be printed"— put and agreed to.
Report Stage ordered for Thursday, 13th December.
