§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."
§ SIR H. AUBREY-FLETCHER (Sussex, Lewes)
said that this Bill was a most important measure connected with agriculture, and was to carry into effect the recommendations of a Departmental Committee. The House ought certainly to have some explanation from the hon. Baronet. A considerable sum of money would have to be provided by the Treasury for the payment of the chief analyst, who was not to engage in private practice while holding the office.
And, it being half-past Seven of the clock, the debate stood adjourned till this Evening's Sitting.
