§ MR. R. B. HALDANE (Haddington)
moved the Second Reading of this Bill. He believed the Bill had been substantially agreed to. As the law stood at present, the costs fell upon the wrong person, and the Bill simply got rid of the technical rule.
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir R. T. REID, Dumfries Burgh)
said, the only purport of the Bill was to make the mortgagor instead of the plaintiff liable for costs, and under these circumstances the Government saw no objection to the Bill.
§ Bill read 2°.
