The Earl of Lauderdale,

in order to enable their lordships to form a better judgment of the proposed change of arrangement on this subject, moved for a statement of all the appeals that had been brought before them, distinguishing the Scotch, the Irish, and the English.

The Lord Chancellor

suggested limiting the retrospective effect of the motion to two years.

The Earl of Lauderdale

agreed to limit it to three years, and for that period the motion was agreed to.
