§ Viscount Palmerston
moved the Second Reading of the Actions for Gaming Discontinuance (No. 2) Bill.
§ On the question that the Bill be now read a second time,
§ Viscount Palmerston
said, what he proposed by the Bill was, to continue things in the same state as by common agreement they ought to remain, viz., as they were, until Parliament should have time to consider the state of the law. He trusted the Bill might be read a second time. The plaintiff in the actions might be heard by counsel, if that was his object, at any other stage.
§ Mr. T. Duncombe
said, that great injustice would be done if the House did not allow counsel to be heard at the Bar.
§ Mr. M. Gibson
observed, that his hon. Friend did not oppose the Bill, but merely contended for the hearing of counsel. He wished to know whether the right hon. Baronet at the head of the Government would or would not oppose the hearing of counsel?
