§ On that Amendment relating to the power of visiting those Houses, with which constables were invested being read,
§ Lord Althorp
said, he should have been better satisfied if the right of entry had been limited to one hour after the time appointed for shutting up the houses, still he should support the Amendment as it stood.
§ Mr. Thomas Attwood
denounced the measure as tyrannical, as the result of old women's talk, or men like old women, who went up and down through the country circulating idle stories about drunkenness and immorality.
§ The House divided: Ayes 29; Noes 12—Majority 17.
