§ Judicial Leases.
§ Clause 9 (Lease approved by Court during its continuance to exclude provisions of the Act).
§ MR. LITTON
moved, as an Amendment, to leave out "thirty," and insert "sixty." He thought that 30 years were too short a term, and that 60 or 61 years would be much better. He was, however, unwilling to press the Amendment, unless he had reason to believe that it would be favourably received by the Committee. He should, therefore, ask the Chairman to put the Amendment.
§ Amendment proposed, in page 9, line 12, to leave out "thirty" and insert "sixty."—(Mr. Litton.)
§ Question proposed, "That the word thirty' stand part of the Clause."
As the hour for reporting Progress has nearly arrived, it is hardly worth while to call upon the Committee to discuss the Amendment, which is of some importance, now. I will, therefore, move that the Chairman report Progress.
§ Motion made, and Question, "That the Chairman do report Progress, and ask leave to sit again,"—(Mr. Gladstone,)—put, and agreed to.
§ Committee report Progress; to sit again this day.
§ And it being now ten minutes to Seven of the clock the House suspended its Sitting.
§ House resumed its Sitting at Nine of the clock.
