HC Deb 26 February 1841 vol 56 cc1132-3
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suspending further proceedings in the numerous Small Debt Bills that were before; the House, as they were likely to be superseded by the County Courts Bill.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.
