HC Deb 05 April 1837 vol 37 cc770-1
The Lord Advocate

observed, that the Bankruptcy Scotland Bill was closely connected with the other. The object of it was, to diminish expense and intricacy of procedure. It comprehended enactments which, at one time, had been distributed into ten different Bills. It and another Bill respecting Sheriff Courts, which stood next in the orders of the day, were founded upon the report of the Scotch Law Commissioners. He moved that they be both now read a second time.

Bills read a second time.
