HC Deb 25 July 1862 vol 168 c881

Order for Committee read.


said, that on the occasion of its second reading, the hon. and learned Member for the Tower Hamlets (Mr. Ayrton) called attention to that part of the Bankruptcy Act of last year which repealed the prohibition against County Court Judges sitting in that House; and he suggested that as the Bill was introduced to amend that Act, the prohibition should be restored. He (Mr. Peel) would adopt that course.

Instruction to the Committee, that they have power to make provision therein for the prohibition of Judges of County Courts sitting in Parliament.

Bill considered in Committee.

House resumed.

Bill reported; as amended, to be considered on Monday next.
