Bill considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

Clauses 1 to 5, inclusive, amended, and agreed to.

Clause 6 (Status of Ministers).


in page 3, line 13, to leave out the words "officiating minister," and insert the words "incumbent and churchwardens of the parish within which any such chapel is situated."


said, he hoped the hon. Member would not press the Amendment, as he intended to move that what ever money might be collected should be divided; and this would afford a rough kind of compromise, sufficient to meet the difficulty.

The Committee divided:—Ayes 34; Noes 18: Majority 16.

Bill reported; as amended, to be considered upon Monday next.

Notice taken, that 40 Members were not present; House counted, and 40 Members not being present.
