§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ MR. MASSEY
said, be rose to move that this Bill be discharged. It was, however, his intention to bring it into Parliament early next Session.
§ SIR WILLIAM JOLLIFFE
observed, that he regretted very much that the Bill had not first been allowed to go to a second reading and be reprinted, because legislation on the subject was most urgent. At the same time he considered it would be almost impossible that a Bill of this kind could pass unless the law on the question was consolidated. He hoped that next Session the hon. Gentleman would bring in a Bill to repeal the whole of the existing laws.
§ Order discharged; Bill withdrawn.
§ House adjourned at half-after One o'clock.
