HC Deb 20 March 1844 vol 73 c1305

The Report on the County Coroners' Bill was brought up, and the Bill re-committed.

House in Committee.

Mr. Scott,

on the sixth Clause, objected, that the effect of it would be to take away the right of election from those in whom it was at present vested, and place it in the hands of those who were qualified to vote for knights of the shire. He would, therefore, move for the omission of the words "knights of the shire," and the insertion of the word "coroners."

The Committee divided on the question that the words "knights of the shire" stand part of the Clause—Ayes 45; Noes 70: Majority 25.
