§ SIR WILLIAM HART DYKE
asked the honourable Member for Forfarshire, Whether, in view of the strong feeling entertained in favour of the amendment of the Law of Distraint, he will remove the opposing Notice which he has placed against the Distress Amendment Bill.
§ MR. J. W. BARCLAY
said, the Distress Amendment Bill, referred to in the Question of the hon. Baronet, continued to the landlord the right to seize the property of third parties in satisfaction of his rent; and it did not, in his opinion, in any respect improve the position of the tenant. The changes or proposals did not seem to him any amendment of the law; and he was sorry he could not withdraw the Notice of Opposition given.
