HC Deb 06 March 1895 vol 31 cc521-2

MR. W. H. HOLLAND (Salford, N.) moved the Second Reading of the Bill.

Objection having been taken,


appealed to the hon. Member who objected. He could not be aware of the contents of the Bill. It was promoted by Members in all parts of the House, and was supported by the Chambers of Commerce of Liverpool and Manchester, and the Incorporated Law Associations of Liverpool and Manchester. The principle of the measure was affirmed by the House in 1884 and 1885.

MR. J. T. BRUNNER (Cheshire, Northwich),

wished to add that the Bill was supported by the Cheshire and North Wales Incorporated Law Society.

MR. W. BROMLEY-DAVENPORT (Cheshire, Macclesfield)

said, it was a Bill of enormous importance, which altered the whole procedure of the courts in Lancashire. He must object.

Motion accordingly postponed.
