HC Deb 19 August 1836 vol 35 cc1328-30

The Solicitor-General moved that the amendments of their Lordships to this Bill be taken into further consideration.

On the question that Clause 55 be agreed to,

Mr. Potter moved that the word five in the clause be struck out, and the word ten be substituted. The clause would then stand thus: that nothing in the Act should authorise the enclosure of any open or common fields being within ten miles of the city of London, or of any open or common field within one mile of any city or town containing 2,000 inhabitants, or within a mile and a half of any city or town containing 5,000 inhabitants, or within two miles of any city or town containing 10,000 inhabitants; or within two miles and a, half of any city or town con- taining 20,000 inhabitants; or within three miles of any city or town containing 50,000 inhabitants; or within five miles of any city or town containing 100,000 inhabitants. The number of inhabitants being ascertained by the last Parliamentary census, and the distance measured from the town-hall, cathedral, or church of such place, as the case may be.

The House divided on the original question.—Ayes 51; Noes 6: Majority 45.
