HC Deb 27 March 1862 vol 166 c134

said, it might be convenient that he should state that he did not intend to proceed with the Prosecutions Expenses Bill that night. He had been wailed upon by an influential deputation of Chairmen of Quarter Sessions and other gentlemen, and they all concurred in requesting him to postpone the Bill till after the Sessions, so that the Magistrates of Counties might have the opportunity of discussing it. He should, therefore, move that the Order for the Second Reading of the Bill be postponed till the 5th of May.

Motion agreed to.
