HC Deb 03 September 1835 vol 30 c1328
The Lord Advocate

moved the third reading of this Bill.

Mr. Patrick M. Stewart

suggested that the words in the Bill—"And also reserving to all parties, who before the 12th of May in this present year shall have objected judicially to the validity of any such writ or writs on the ground of erasure, all pleas that would have been competent to them before the passing of this Act," should be left out. This provision, he contended, would place the parties engaged in pending suits in a worse situation than they were at present.

House counted out.
