§ Order for Third Reading read.
§ Bill read 3°. On the Question that the Bill do pass,
§ MR. BANKES
said, he looked upon the measure as one of considerable importance. 206 He thought it would have been perfectly safe to have made it extend to cases of conspiracy. He thought also that provision ought to be made for defraying the expenses of parties who conducted proceedings for conspiracy in gross cases of injustice. A discretion ought to be given to the Judges who adjudicated on those prosecutions to award costs to the prosecutors.
§ Sir G. GREY
said, the Bill already provided for certain cases of conspiracy; but it was thought unwise to burthen it with provisions to meet every particular case of that nature which might occur.
§ Bill passed.
