HC Deb 06 July 1864 vol 176 c948

Order for Committee read.

MR. PAULL moved that the House go into Committee upon this Bill.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the Chair."


appealed to the hon. Member not to press the Bill. The Lord Chancellor had introduced a somewhat analogous measure into the other House, but owing to representations that were made, and opposition that was offered, that Bill had been withdrawn.


said, he had abstained from pressing this Bill until now, because it was understood that the Lord Chancellor intended to deal with the subject to which it related. As the measure proposed by the Lord Chancellor had been withdrawn, he knew no reason why the Bill should not be proceeded with.


said, that a large Trade Protection Society in the town he represented objected to the Bill, which would destroy a system of credit most essential to the comfort of the working classes in time of pressure.


did not think the opposition of a combination of Trade Protection Societies should prevail against the Bill.

Bill considered in Committee.

House resumed.

Committee report Progress; to sit again To-morrow.

House adjourned at a quarter before Sis o'clock.
