HC Deb 02 June 1847 vol 93 cc1-2

ON the Order of the Day for the Second Reading of the County Elections Polls Bill,


observed, that he concurred in the principle of the Bill; but as there appeared to he an expectation of a general election taking place during the present year, he thought it would not be desirable to pass the Bill at the present moment; as, if a general election should take place this year, there would not be time for the magistrates at the county courts to fix the additional polling places rendered necessary by the Bill.


said, that, after what had fallen from the right hon. Gentleman, he did not wish to take up the time of the House in discussing the Bill, and would therefore withdraw it.

Second reading postponed for three months.
