§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ MR. GATHORNE HARDY
said, the Bill was essential in order to establish the validity of certain sales of capitular property under Orders in Council, on the legality of which some doubt had been thrown by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.
§ MR. BOUVERIE
expressed a hope that the measure would not only establish the validity of what had already been done; but would provide for the commutation of Other ecclesiastical estates not already commuted.
§ Bill read a second time, and committed for Wednesday next.
