HC Deb 11 August 1836 vol 35 cc1149-50

The Chancellor of the Exchequer moved the third reading of the Civil Offices Declaration Bill.

Colonel Sibthorp

was decidedly opposed to the Bill and to the practice of proceeding with measures of this important description at so late a period of the Session.

Mr. A. Trevor

entirely coincided with the gallant Member for Lincoln. The principle of the Bill appeared to him to be most objectionable, and rather than suffer it to pass in such a hurried manner, he would continue to divide against it till eight o'clock in the morning.

The House divided:—Ayes 45; Noes 2: Majority 43.

Bill read a third time and passed.
