§ Sir James Beckett
observed, that all their Lordships' amendments in this Bill were such as to render it doubly beneficial to the people.
§ Mr. Wakley
protested against the Bill, which, he said, had by no means met with due discussion in that House. It was a Bill which materially affected the rights and enjoyments of the people, and he should oppose it by every means in his power.
§ Mr. Warburton
supported the Bill. Those who opposed it confounded two things essentially distinct—common fields and commons. The enclosure and improved cultivation of common fields would be a great benefit to the whole country, and in no respect infringe upon the property or rights of the people.
§ Mr. Blamire
supported the Bill. So far from not having been duly considered, it had been discussed and printed over and over again. It was a most valuable Bill, in strict accordance with every principle of justice and good policy, and would be of great advantage to the labouring classes.
§ House counted out.
