HC Deb 10 April 1866 vol 182 c1076

Order for Second Reading read.

MR. HARVEY LEWIS moved the second reading of this Bill, the object of which was to allow vestries to make provision for officers who, in the discharge of official duties, have become unfit for Service.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Mr. Harvey Lewis.)


thought the Bill ought to have been considered more with reference to the scale of superannuations in public offices than it appeared to have been, but he would not oppose the second reading.


explained that the measure had been framed upon the precedent set two years ago with reference to officers of the Poor Law Board.

Bill read a second time, and committed for Friday.
