HC Deb 07 August 1839 vol 50 cc1-2

Lord J. Russell moved the Lords' amendments to the Lower Canada Government Bill be agreed to,

Sir C. Grey

begged to know in what they consisted?

Mr. Labouchere

said, that the most important one was this. The bill, as sent to the Lords, gave a general power to the Legislative Council to alter the tenure of land; and the Lords had simply restricted legislation upon that subject to the island of Montreal.

Amendments agreed to.
