HC Deb 05 August 1869 vol 198 c1368

[BILL 89]—(Lords)—COMMITTEE.

Order for Committee read.


F said, that this measure stood in a very different position from that which had just passed through Committee. That was of comparatively small importance, while the present Bill was the reverse. He felt, therefore, that it would be wrong to go on with it at the present period of the Session. There were, however, three clauses respecting which, he believed, no difference of opinion existed, and which were of considerable importance— namely Clauses 1 and 2, which corrected a clerical error in a former Act, and Clause 9, which enabled the Government of India and the Legislative Council to pass a Vagrant Act for India. These clauses he would ask the House to pass.


said, he approved of the clauses in question.
