§ The Lord Chancellor moved that the House resolve itself into a Committee on the above Bill.
§ Lord Lyndhurst
said, that from the character of the objections which were urged against this measure, it would be much better considered in a Committee above stairs than it could possibly be in a Committee of the whole House. He should, therefore, move "that the Bill be referred to a Committee above stairs." As the Municipal Corporation Bill had become part of the law of the land, that measure ought to be rendered as complete as possible, but in taking steps for that purpose they ought studiously to avoid 1015 anything like oppression in dealing with the rights of individuals.
§ Motion agreed to, and a Select Committee appointed.
