HC Deb 07 August 1866 vol 184 c2152

said, he could not help feeling that the House of Lords had struck out one clause relating to compensation to be paid to surveyors and other officers connected with the turnpike trusts without a full knowledge of the circumstances under which the clause was introduced. He trusted the right hon. Gentleman the Home Secretary would give the House some assurance that the subject should receive careful attention before the Act was put into operation.


said, the fullest consideration should be given to the subject. Undoubtedly some of the officers, such as surveyors, were entitled to compensation, but there was a question as to whether a distinction should not be drawn between those officers and others who were not placed in the same position or under the same circumstances.


said, that after the assurance he had received he should not attempt to oppose the Amendment.

Lords Amendments to be considered forthwith.

Lords Amendments agreed to.

House adjourned at a quarter before Seven o'clock till Friday.
