HC Deb 17 August 1835 vol 30 cc619-20

On the Motion of Mr. O'Loghlen, the House resolved itself into a Committee on this Bill.

Mr. Warburton

proposed an Amendment, to the effect that "The Chief Remembrancer be restrained from engaging in any other office not connected with his duties as Remembrancer."

The Chancellor of the Exchequer

observed that there was an Act already in existence, by which he believed that the object of the Amendment of the hon. Member for Bridport would be answered.

Mr. O'Connell

was favourable to the principle of excluding judicial functionaries from seats in that House; but as the ease in question was already provided for he supposed the hon. Member would withdraw his Amendment.

The Committee divided on the Amendment Ayes 21; Noes 46; Majority 28.

The Bill went into Committee, the House having resumed.
