§ The House went into a Committee on this Bill.

The Attorney General
said, that in such circumstances, the minimum of time set down would be considered by the officer as a maximum, and it would be better to leave it to the conscience and discretion of the Registrar.
§ Mr. Crampton
said, if a stated time was mentioned, the Registrar would never attend beyond that, and there were occasions when his presence for a longer period was necessary.
§ Amendment negatived.
proposed, that the salary of the Registrar should be reduced from 1,500l. to 1,200l. a-year.
§ Motion withdrawn.
