HC Deb 23 February 1849 vol 102 c1202

On the Order of the Day for the Second Reading of this Bill,


protested against the measure, upon the ground that it would cause an extravagant expenditure of the public money, and intimated that, although he should decline dividing on the present stage of the measure, the House would certainly be divided upon it at a future one.

Bill read a second time.
