§ Order for Committee read. Motion made and Question proposed, "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the Chair."
§ MR. ROEBUCK
objected to the House going into Committee upon this Bill owing to the lateness of the hour (twenty minutes past one).
§ Motion made and Question proposed, "That the Debate be now adjourned."
§ SIR ERSKINE PERRY
said, that the hon. and learned Member had already given in his adhesion to the principle of the Bill, and he was not acting fairly in opposing the Bill going into Committee.
§ MR. BERNAL OSBORNE
said, he thought the House was much indebted to the hon. and learned Member for having 1705 watched the progress of the measure through the House, as it was a most mischievous Bill whatever may have been the motives of those who introduced it.
§ MR. MALINS
said, the Bill was not new to the House if it was new to the Secretary of the Admiralty. The Secretary of State for the Home Department had given it his full approval, and yet the hon. Gentleman had come down and designated it as a mischievous measure.
§ Original Question and Motion by leave withdrawn. Committee deferred till Wednesday next.
§ House adjourned at Two o'clock.
