The Earl of Lin- coln
begged leave to suggest that the Government ought to propose a resolution suspending further proceedings in the numerous Small Debt Bills that were before; the House, as they were likely to be superseded by the County Courts Bill. It would save much trouble and expense to the parties concerned.
§ Sir R. Peel
said, on a former occasion the noble Lord had benefited from a Tithe Commutation Bill prepared by him (Sir R. Peel). In the year 1837, he brought in a bill for the introduction of County Courts. He did not mean to introduce that bill in opposition to the noble Lord's; but if there was no objection in point of form, he would move that the bill be printed, in order to see if any thing could be got from it.
§ Lord John Russell
had no objection.
