§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ SIR GEORGE GREY
remarked, that the Bill was of much importance, as it made 114 a great alteration in respect to the assessment of property, and he asked the hon. Member in charge of the measure to postpone it, on account of the absence of his learned Friend the Lord Advocate, and because some necessary information, which would be furnished by a Return of which notice had been given, was not yet before the House.
§ Second Reading deferred till Wednesday, 9th April.
