HC Deb 14 June 1824 vol 11 cc1337-8

Mr. F. Buxton moved the third reading of this bill.

Mr. Alderman Thompson

opposed the motion. There were, he said, six hundred persons interested in the measure, who had nut had an opportunity of being heard by counsel against it.

Mr. Plummer

also objected to the bill.

Mr. Huskisson

regretted that the worthy alderman should offer any thing like a vexatious opposition to the passing of a measure, which had already been debated in every Stage. The two chartered companies who were interested in the bill had been heard by counsel against it, and he should certainly object to the hearing any more counsel,

Mr. Grenfell

could not admit that the bill had been sufficiently discussed.

The House divided: for the third reading 559; against it 159.
