Mr. Stuart Wortley
moved a Resolution in conformity with that recommended by the First Report of the Committee on Railways of last Session—viz., that the following clause be inserted in all Railway Bills passing through this House:—And be it further Enacted, That nothing herein contained shall be deemed or construed to exempt the Railway by this or the said recited Acts authorised to be made from the provisions of any general Act relating to such Bills, or of any general Act relating to Railways, which may hereafter pass during the present or any future Session of Parliament.In proposing this, he wished the Bills which passed this and all future Sessions should be placed in the same condition with the Railway Bills that passed last Session.
§ Mr. Gisborne
understood this was proposed as a Standing Order, and he had an objection to the patching up of the Standing Orders of the House.
§ Mr. Labouchere
was disposed to concur in the propriety of the proposition; but still the question ought to be adjourned.
§ Motion withdrawn.
