HC Deb 05 April 1837 vol 37 c795

Alderman Wood moved the second reading of the Hackney Carriages (Metropolis) Bill.

Colonel Sibthorp

opposed it. He disapproved of it in toto, and considered it utterly inadequate to its purpose.

Mr. Warburton

thought, it unfair to move the second reading then, as many Members desirous of opposing it had gone away when they found that the hon. Alderman, at another part of the evening, was not in his place.

House divided, there being with the four tellers and the Speaker 41 Members present:—Ayes28; Noes 8: Majority 20.
