HC Deb 13 July 1842 vol 65 c99

On the question that this bill do pass,

Sergeant Murphy

remarked that the provisions might not be found to apply to an assault by means of an air gun.

Sir R. Peel

thought the words, " or other description," supplied the deficiency pointed out by the hon. Member.

Bill passed.

House adjourned at a quarter to two o'clock.
