HC Deb 03 March 1862 vol 165 cc988-9

Order for Second Reading read.

SIR GEORGE LEWIS moved the second reading of this Bill.


believed that the measure was unnecessary, it being quite competent for the Queen in Council, at this moment, to do all that it proposed to accomplish.


admitted that the matter was not one of any very great moment; but the Bill was intended to remove doubts as to the legal position of officers of the army, with respect to which it was undesirable that any uncertainty should exist.

Bill read 2o, and committed for Thursday.

House adjourned at One o'clock.
