§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Mr. R. T. Reid.)
§ *SIR M. HICKS-BEACH (Bristol, W.)
said, that as this Bill was introduced it applied not only to limitations of the time for bringing actions, but to the subject of contract. Objections were made to the proposal with regard to contracts by some of his constituents, and if the Bill still applied to that matter he must object to it.
§ MR. R. T. REID
said, the only provision applying to actions founded on contract related to proceedings in respect of a wrongful act.
§ MR. TOMLINSON (Preston)
objected to the Second Reading.
§ Second Reading deferred till To-morrow.
