The EARL of LINCOLN
moved for leave to bring in a Bill to regulate the valuation of rateable property in Ireland. It would be within the recollection of the House that last year a Bill had been introduced into the House to amend the system of valuing land in Ireland, but it was considered defective, and had been accordingly dropped. The present measure, he hoped, would obviate the evils which had proved fatal to the Bill of last year. He would propose that evening to lay the Bill on the Table without further comment, believing that he would best consult the convenience of the House to reserve details for a future occasion. It was his intention to propose the second reading on a distant day, in order to give time for due consideration.
§ Leave given. Bill brought in and read a first time.
