HC Deb 03 July 1862 vol 167 cc1401-2

Order for Committee read.

House in Committee.


said, he wished to move the insertion of a clause in lieu of one which he had withdrawn, providing that every person making application for relief after the passing of the Act should be deemed to have been resident in the electoral division in which, during the period of five years immediately before the application he had been longest usually resident, certain qualifications being laid down as to the electoral division in which the persons seeking relief should, under certain circumstances, be chargeable. The clause was, he might add, the same as had been in operation in Ireland for some time.


said, he objected to the clause, as it did not carry out the views of the Committee.

Clause agreed to.

House resumed.

Bill reported; as amended, to be considered To-morrow.
