§ Bill, as amended, considered:—Amendment made:—Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be read the third time To-morrow."
§ MR. J. O'CONNELL
opposed the measure altogether, as being injurious to the poor man, and as depriving him of all means of redress against magistrates who acted unjustly. He therefore moved, that it be put off for six months.
§ Amendment proposed, to leave out the word "To-morrow," in order to add the words "upon this day six months," instead thereof.
§ SIR W. SOMERVILLE
briefly defended the Bill, and explained that it was intended by it to give the same protection to magistrates in Ireland as in England.
§ Question put, "That the word 'Tomorrow' stand part of the Question."
§ The House divided:—Ayes 38; Noes 2: Majority 36.
