HC Deb 13 July 1840 vol 55 cc714-6

House in Committee on the Prisons (Ireland) Bill.

On the fourth clause, and on amendment being proposed,

Colonel Perceval

objected to the committee proceeding any further with the bill to-night, and to the practice of Government introducing a variety of new bills at the close of the Session, when all the Irish members of the legal profession were necessarily absent, attending the assizes. He moved that the Chairman report progress.

Viscount Morpeth

said, these bills were for advancing the general interests of the country, if, therefore, the hon. and gallant Member persisted in his opposition, he should certainly divide the House upon it.

Colonel Perceval

thought that these bills were introduced for party purposes; and he should therefore persist in his motion.

The Committee divided; Ayes 18; Noes 29: Majority 11.
