§ Order for Committee read.
§ SIR H. MAXWELL (Wigton)
wished to ask whether the Secretary for Scotland would consider, before the Committee stage came on the Report of the Committee over which he (Sir H. Maxwell) had presided, as to incorporating in the Bill some of that Committee's recommendations?
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Sir G. TREVELYAN,) Glasgow, Bridgeton
said, he was willing to consider these recommendations, but there were some which he took exception to, though there were others which he thought valuable.
§ MR. ANSTRUTHER (St. Andrews, &c.)
asked, would it be possible to put down the Committee stage of the Bill for 1850 certain nights—say, Mondays and Thursdays—so that Scottish Members would not be detained night after night to watch for it?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. MARJORIBANKS,) Berwickshire
said, the Bill would be put down at every convenient opportunity to facilitate discussion.
§ Committee deferred till Monday next.
