§ Mr. Littleton moved the second reading of this Bill.
§ The Solicitor General
supported the Bill, the object of which was to oblige the Sheriff to Select Juries fairly and impartially.
§ Mr. Sergeant Perrin
took the same view of the Bill. It would secure the selection of a better class of Jurors, and a more impartial mode of selection.
§ Mr. O'Reilly
approved of the Bill generally, but he did not agree in that part which left the selection to irresponsible persons.
§ Mr. Cobbett
would not say anything on the Bill, as he knew nothing about it, but he hoped that, as it was intended that next Session the House should sit from ten o'clock in the morning to five o'clock in the afternoon, the public business would not be huddled up in this manner, so that Members could not find time to make themselves acquainted with it.
§ The Bill read a second time.
