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.
§ 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.
§ 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.
