§ (In the Committee.)
§ Clause 12 (Paupers not to vote election of guardians.)
§ Mr. SCLATER-BOOTH (for Mr. NEVILLE-GRENVILLE)
moved, in page 4, line 5, to add—and that a list of the names of persons objected to who have received relief during the past year, sealed with the common seal of the 1596 board of guardians, shall be sufficient evidence of their having received relief.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Sir HENRY JAMES
asked if this was not the measure which the Prime Minister stated would be taken on Tuesday next?
§ Mr. SCLATER-BOOTH
said, it always was his intention to take the Bill that night in preference to any other he had on the Paper, and if his right hon. Friend said that the Bill would be taken next Tuesday, no doubt he thought it would not be reached in time before then.
§ Clause, as amended, agreed to.
§ Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Tuesday next, at Two of the clock.
