HL Deb 19 July 1832 vol 14 cc530-1

The Re- form of Parliament (Ireland) Bill was brought up from the Commons by Mr. Crampton and others; and read a first time, to be printed.

Viscount Melbourne

moved that the Bill be read a second time on Monday next.

The Duke of Cumberland

suggested to the noble Viscount, that the second reading should be deferred beyond that period, as several Irish Peers who desired to deliver their opinions on the Bill were absent and could not have notice in sufficient time.

Earl Grey

thought that the time was sufficient for every requisite notice. The Bill might be printed and circulated by Monday, and if it were not, the second reading might be then postponed.

The second reading fixed for Monday.
