HL Deb 01 August 1836 vol 35 c686

The Duke of Richmond moved the third reading of the Parochial Rates Bill.

The Earl of Liverpool

wished the noble Duke would not press the measure through its final stage this evening, because he was desirous of moving another clause to the Bill.

The Duke of Richmond

said, that he would not.

Lord Hatherton

thought, that the Bill would prove beneficial to the country, as it would equalise the county rates, and make every parish pay in a just proportion.

The Earl of Liverpool

would only say, that he considered the Bill unnecessary.

Lord Dacre

said, that he thought the proviso at the end of the first clause in the Bill ought to be omitted, and he accordingly moved it be expunged.

The Duke of Richmond

defended the Bill, and said he believed there was no ground for the apprehension which some noble Lords appeared to entertain.

Bill read a third time, but further proceedings on the measure were adjourned.
