HC Deb 25 June 1858 vol 151 c415

said, he rose to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the judgment delivered in the Court of Exchequer on the 25th of May last in the case of "Furber v. Sturmey," and if so, whether he is prepared to introduce a Bill to alter and amend the 43rd section of the Act 19 & 20 Vict. c. 108, or take any other course to place the state of the Law in this respect on a more satisfactory footing.


said, his attention had been called to the judgment alluded to by his hon. Friend, and if the Law were such as from that judgment it appeared to be, he thought it was an unfortunate state of things. His noble Friend the Lord Chancellor was about to bring in a Bill with reference to the County Courts, in which he proposed to insert a clause to amend the 43rd section of the Act referred to.
