HC Deb 17 August 1836 vol 35 c1274

Mr. C. A. Pelham moved the Order of the day, for the consideration of the Lords' amendments to this Bill.

Mr. Wakley

objected to the amendments being taken into consideration, as they had not been printed, and suggested that they should be postponed till Friday. So far as he had read the amendments, he thought them decided improvements to the Bill, but he was anxious to consider them more carefully.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer

remarked, that if hon. Members were ignorant of the nature of the amendments, the best way to acquire a knowledge of them, was to proceed to consider them.

Mr. Warburton

observed, that the Lords' amendments made the Bill much more popular than before.

The House divided: Ayes 60; Noes 5 Majority 55.
