presented a petition from Kirkaldy, for Parliamentary and Burgh Reform. The noble Lord said, he did not wish to identify or pledge himself to the support of the petitioners' views, but would come unshackled to the consideration of the question.
Sir Ronald Ferguson
stated, that the petition was signed by all the respectable inhabitants of the town, and he hoped with them that an extensive Reform would be granted, and would extend to Scotland.
§ Mr. Kennedy
also supported the prayer of the petition, and said, that there was no town in Scotland better entitled to express its opinion and its wishes.
