§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ VISCOUNT PALMERSTON
said, he concluded that the Government intended to bring in a Bill of their own upon this subject. He was unwilling, however, to drop the present measure until the House should be able to see the Bill which the Government intended to introduce. He should therefore propose to postpone this Motion to an early day after Easter, by which time he presumed that the Government would have matured their plan, and have laid it before the House. He moved, therefore, that the second reading be postponed till Thursday, the 22nd April.
§ Second Reading deferred till Thursday, 22nd April.
