HC Deb 26 March 1867 vol 186 cc568-9

Order for Second Reading read.


said, he rose to move the second reading of this Bill, and would propose to take the discussion when the Bill was printed with Amendments.

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


said, he hoped that a fair opportunity would be given for a full discussion of the measure, to which there was great objection.


said, he understood that the concessions made in the Bill by the hon. and learned Gentleman (Mr. Selwyn), and its noble author, were so many that all the objectionable clauses had been struck out. He also understood that the auctioneers had waived their opposition to it, and now wished it to be proceeded with, on the understanding that there would be full liberty that its opponents should he unpledged with respect to it. Under these circumstances, he would postpone his observations until they went into Committee.

Motion agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and committedfor To-morrow.
