HC Deb 30 July 1845 vol 82 cc1270-1
Mr. G. W. Hope

moved the Second Reading of the Waste Lands (Australia) Bill. He had some important Amendments to introduce.

Mr. C. Buller

objected to the Bill being pressed; he had understood it would not be pressed if objected to, and he could assure the hon. Gentleman it would be resolutely and vigorously opposed in every stage.

Mr. Aglionby

said not one, but every interest, was opposed to the Bill. He moved that it be read a second time that day six months.

The House divided on the Question, that the words six months be added:—Ayes 11; Noes 34: Majority 23.

Debate again arising.

Bill read a second time.

The House adjourned at half-past two o'clock.
