HL Deb 24 March 1836 vol 32 c545
Upon the motion of Lord Duncannon

the Constabulary Bill (Ireland) was read a first time. Upon his Lordship proposing that it be read a second time on Monday next,

The Duke of Wellington

objected to this, as a very irregular course. The Bill had not as yet been printed, when their Lordships were told they should be called upon to discuss it on Monday next.

Lord Duncannon

had hoped that the Bill would be printed and in the hands of noble Lords by Saturday; and it was therefore he proposed the second reading for so early a day as Monday. If the Bill was not printed on Saturday he should not, of course, think of persevering. Bill read a first time.
