§ MR. DENMAN
, in moving for leave to bring in a Bill for the further amendment of the Law of Evidence, said, the measure sought to carry out to their legitimate conclusion two great principles—the first being that there should be no incapacity of persons as witnesses merely from their having an interest in the case, and the second, that parties should not be deprived of the evidence of witnesses through some defect in the religious belief of such witnesses.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Bill for the further amendment of the Law of Evidence, ordered to be brought in by Mr. DENMAN, Mr. LOCKE KING, and Mr. LOCKE.
§ Bill presented, and read the first time. [Bill 25.]
