HL Deb 25 November 1830 vol 1 cc667-8
Lord Lyndhurst

gave notice, that he should move the second reading of this Bill to-morrow, and then requested that their Lordships should be summoned for that day. He said that he gave this short notice of his intention to bring on the second reading of this Bill to-morrow, on the assumption that no opposition would be made to its principle. From what had occurred on the night when he brought in this Bill, he did not anticipate any objection to the principle of the Bill. Any alteration that might appear necessary in the details of it, could be best made when the Bill was in Committee.

Earl Grey

rose to confirm his noble friend in the assumption which he had just made. He was not opposed to the principle of the Bill; on the contrary, he approved of it: indeed, it was impossible for him to do otherwise, for the noble Lord had stated the very same principles for which he had always contended when the Regency had been made a subject of public difference and discussion. To the principle of the Bill, he repeated, he had no objection; the details were, as his noble friend had said, the proper subject for consideration in the committee.
