HC Deb 05 August 1857 vol 147 c1082

Order for Second Reading read.


, in moving that the Bill be read a second time, suggested that there should be no discussion upon it at present. What he proposed was, that it should be read a second time, with the view of its being committed pro formâ tomorrow, in order to insert various Amendments, which would, he believed, remove many of the objections entertained to the Bill.


said, he had no objection to the course suggested by the hon. Gentleman. He could not himself have voted for the Bill in its present form, but he had been in communication with the Chief Justice of the Queen's Bench, who had expressed his assent to the introduction of certain Amendments which appeared to him to be very desirable.

Bill read 2°, and committed for Tomorrow.
