HC Deb 25 May 1848 vol 98 cc1416-7

House in Committee.

On Clause 2 (heir in possession under an existing entail, born after March 1, 1848, may disinherit, &c.), being proposed,

MR. D. MACNEIL said, he thought it would very much have simplified the measure if the same powers had been given to present as to future heirs.

MR. FORBES MACKENZIE moved the omission of the clause.

The Committee divided on the question, that the clause stand part of the Bill:— Ayes 87; Noes 19: Majority 68.

On Clause 3 being proposed,

MR. BOUVERIE moved an Amendment to the effect that the consent of three substitutes, instead of four, should be sufficient for the cutting off the entail.

MR. F. .MAULE said, he was not one of those who wished to see a great amount of entailed estate brought into the market under this Bill; but he wished to see such arrangements made, under entails in Scotland, as should disburden estates of their present incumbrances, and lead to the laying out of money upon them. He was not unwilling to accept the Amendment.

Committee divided on the question, that the word "four" stand part of the clause: —Ayes 17; Noes 86: Majority 69.
