HC Deb 02 July 1808 vol 11 c1130

The Sugar Distillery bill was brought from the lords, with an amendment, to which their lordships desired the concurrence of the commons.

Mr. R. Dundas moved, that the house do agree to the lords amendment in this bill. The bill, in fact, now stood in the precise state in which it was when it left that house. An alteration had surreptitiously been made in the bill in its passage from that to the other house of parliament, by substituting the words Great Britain for the word England, and the amendment of the lords only brought back the bill to that state in which it was when last before them.—The amendment was accordingly agreed to.
