MR. R. HODGSON moved that the Bill be re-committed, with an Instruction to the Committee that they should report the reasons and facts.


asked, on what ground the hon. Gentleman proposed to re-commit the Bill?


said, that the ground upon which he proposed his Amendment was, that this Bill was similar in its character to the Bill which the House had already re-committed.


remarked, that this Bill stood precisely on the same footing with the Bill which had already been re-committed to the former Committee, and he apprehended, therefore, that the House would agree to the Amendment.

Bill re-committed to the former Committee.

Instruction to the Committee, That they do report, in compliance with Standing Order No. 140, the reasons and facts upon which their opinion, that the restriction as to the acquisition and use of Steam Vessels ought not to be enforced, was founded.—(Mr. Richard Hodgson.)
