HL Deb 28 March 1831 vol 3 cc979-80
Lord Melbourne

moved that the Order of the Day for the Second Reading of the Subletting Act (Ireland) be discharged; which having been agreed to, the noble Lord gave notice that he should move the second reading of the Bill on the first open day after the Recess.

The Earl of Wicklow

said, that as the Bill had been printed, and had gone forth, as well as the speech of the noble Lord, amongst those persons in Ireland who were seriously interested in the measure, it would be desirable that the noble Lord should now state the alterations which he proposed to make in the Bill, in order that they might, during the Recess, be under the consideration of the parties in Ireland who would be affected by the measure.

Lord Plunkett

observed, that his noble friend had postponed the second reading of the Bill, in order to consider what alterations might be made in it, and that he would no doubt be happy to attend to any suggestions which the noble Earl, or any of the parties interested in the subject, might offer in reference to it.
