HC Deb 28 July 1896 vol 43 cc835-6

The object of the clause was to amend a beneficial provision of the Act of 1887. That provision, though general in its terms, had hitherto been restricted in its application to cases where a receiver had been appointed by a Judge of the Landed Estates Court.

Clause, by leave, withdrawn.
