§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ MR. HENLEY
, amid some laughter, asked who had charge of this Bill, and whether any one knew anything about it.
THE SOLICITOR GENERAL
said, he only happened to know incidentally that the necessity for this Bill arose from an Order in Council which transferred the jurisdiction from the Court of Siam to the Court of Singapore; and unless that Order was confirmed by Act of Parliament it would not operate with reference to Singapore.
§ Bill read 2°, and committed for Tomorrow.
