§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ MR. BENTINCK
hoped that there would be a full opportunity of discussing this Bill before it went into Committee.
§ MR. AYRTON
complained that the Bill contained most extraordinary clauses; and if it was discussed before going into Committee, and they went into Committee immediately afterwards, the object of the discussion would be lost.
§ MR. HORSFALL
also hoped that a full discussion of the provisions of the Bill would take place, as his constituents had that day communicated to him some objections to certain clauses.
§ MR. CAVE
said, that the principle of the Bill had already been approved of. He hoped the Bill would now be read a second time: a full opportunity might be allowed for discussion on the Motion for going into 328 Committee, or it might be postponed till they were in Committee, as the objections were evidently to matters of detail.
said, that if the proposition for discussing the Bill before going into Committee were adopted, they might as well postpone the second reading at once, unless they went into Committee immediately after that discussion. He hoped the right hon. Gentleman would proceed with the second reading.
§ MR. MILNER GIBSON
said, that he had not the least objection to the fullest discussion; and if the Bill were read a second time now, he would fix the Committee for after Easter.
§ Bill read 2 °, and committed for Friday, 11th April.
