HC Deb 06 July 1858 vol 151 c1000

Order for Committee read.


said, he understood the objections entertained against the Bill were mostly directed to the 2nd and 3rd clauses. He proposed, therefore, to omit the 2nd clause altogether, and to alter the 3rd clause so as to make the foot toll cease as soon as the capital, £80,000, together with interest not exceeding 4 per cent, bad been repaid. That proposition would, he thought, obviate all objection to the Bill, and accomplish his great desire of seeing an end to this vexatious legislation. If that arrangement met the view of the House, he proposed to postpone the consideration of the Bill in Committee until Thursday next.

Committee deferred till Thursday.
