HL Deb 28 June 1831 vol 4 cc407-8
Viscount Melbourne

brought in a Bill for the regulation of Lieutenants of Counties, the second reading of which he gave notice he would move on Monday next.

The Duke of Wellington

inquired if the noble Lord intended to enter into the details of the measure now?

Viscount Melbourne

apprehended there would be no opposition to the introduction of the Bill, but if it were required, as the noble Duke's question seemed to imply, he would at once enter into the details, but he should beg noble Lords to defer a debate upon it until the second reading.

The Marquis of Londonderry

inquired if the Bill went to affect the office of Custos Rotulorum in Ireland.

Viscount Melbourne

said, it did not affect that office.
