HC Deb 20 March 1846 vol 84 cc1340-3

, in moving the Second Reading of this Bill, said, it would have the effect of abolishing the sale of spirituous liquors, &c., at toll bars—a practice which rendered travelling on roads unsafe as well as disagreeable.


, although not opposed altogether to the principle of the Bill, trusted the right hon. Gentleman would not press it at so late an hour of the night, because it involved the whole of the licensing system of Scotland.


hoped he might be allowed to take the second reading then, and the discussion upon a future stage of the Bill.


also urged the postponement of the Bill.


begged to say, that he was entirely opposed to the principle of the measure, and he looked upon it as an unnecessary interference with the present system; and therefore he objected to the second reading.

The House divided:—Ayes 45; Noes 13: Majority 32.
