HC Deb 26 May 1830 vol 24 cc1128-9

Sir T. D. Acland moved for leave to bring in a Bill to protect Stage Coach Proprietors from their present liabilities in respect of Parcels sent by their Coaches, where undue concealment was practised by the parties sending them. He was willing that they should be made generally liable in all cases to the amount of 20l. without special notice. Wherever the value was above 20l. the burthen of giving notice should rest upon the parties sending the parcel.

Motion, after a few words from Sir T. Freemantle and Mr. N. Calvert, agreed to.
