§ MR. RUSSELL GURNEY
, in moving for leave to introduce a Bill to amend the Law with respect to the Property of Married Women, said, it was similar to one that was introduced last Session, which was read a second time and then referred to a Select Committee. That Committee reported in favour of several portions of the Bill, but recommended further inquiry; an inquiry which, owing to the lateness of the Session, could not then be made. He trusted that the Bill would be now accepted, and that the debate might be taken on the second reading.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Bill to amend the Law with respect to the Property of Married Women, ordered to be brought in by Mr. RUSSELL GURNEY, Mr. HEADLAM, and Mr. JACOB BRIGHT.
§ Bill presented, and read the first time. [Bill 20.]
