§ Bill considered in Committee.
§ (In the Committee.)
§ Clause 1.
§ * SIR F. S. POWELL (Wigan)
asked if this Bill had received the usual revision by the constituted authorities? On former occasions opportunity had been given to examine such Bills, and to make suggestions which were sometimes useful. He did not in any way wish to delay the Bill; but he asked, had the usual practice been followed? and hoped that some little time would be allowed to elapse between the circulation of such a Bill and its Second Reading.
THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir J. RIGHT,) Forfar
said, the Bill had received the usual consideration of the Joint Committee, and had been reconsidered since printing. He had an Amendment to propose, but subject to that he could say that no blot would be found in the Bill. The Second Reading was taken last night.
§ SIR F. S. POWELL
said, he got his copy this morning. Would the Government give an undertaking that, in future, a sufficient interval should be allowed?
§ Motion made, and Question proposed. "That the Chairman do report Progress, and ask leave to sit again."—(Sir J. Rigby.)1081
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Thursday.
