HC Deb 22 April 1836 vol 33 c121
Sir Robert Peel

said, it would be satisfactory if the noble Lord would state whether the measure he intended to bring forward on Monday would involve any principle of appropriation, or any principle likely to be contested. As this was Friday, he thought it but just that the principle of the Bill should be stated:

Lord Morpeth

replied, that the terms of the resolution he intended to propose was to the effect, "That it is expedient to commute the composition of Tithes upon a rent-charge upon owners of property, and to mate further provisions for the better regulation of ecclesiastical dues and revenues."

Sir Robert Peel

apprehended, that there was nothing then in the resolution that involved a contested principle.

Lord John Russell

said, that care had been taken so to frame the resolution as not to use any objectionable terms.
