HC Deb 29 July 1836 vol 35 c677

On the motion for taking into further consideration the report of the Stannary Courts Bill.

Sir J. Y. Buller

declared himself opposed to many of the details of the measure.

The Solicitor-General

stated the objects of the Bill, one of the principles of which was, to make the vice-warden an effective judge both in the equity and common law courts of Cornwall. The expense would not be great, and the mode of defraying it was satisfactorily arranged by the provisions of the measure.

Mr. Vivian

bore testimony to the fact that the Bill had no party or political purpose; the principle of it had been discussed and agreed to at several county meetings.

Bill re-committed, and various amendments made.

On clause 44, transferring the rights and jurisdiction of the Old Stannary Court to the New Court being put,

Mr. Praed

opposed the Clause,

The Committee divided—Ayes 79: Noes 29;—Majority 50, Clause agreed to.

The other Clauses and schedules were agreed to.
