Amendment proposed, to leave out all the words after the word "be," in order to add the word "re-committed."—(Mr. Fawcett.)


said, that, if the proposition of the Bill were not misunderstood, the Amendment implied that the hon. Member was a fool, or he (the Attorney General) himself was a knave.

Question put, "That the words proposed to be left out stand part of the Question."

The House divided:—Ayes 87; Noes 9: Majority 78.

Main Question put, and agreed to.
