§ Lord Brougham moved, that the third clause be struck out, not because he objected to an increase in the salaries of the police magistrates, or to their being allowed retiring pensions, but because he wished those pensions to be introduced in a proper bill, which should be introduced at a period when it might receive due deliberation and proper attention.
§ Lord Lyndhurst
believed, that the noble Viscount opposite (Viscount Duncannon), had last night given only two reasons for the introduction of these provisions — one was, that additional duties were imposed upon the magistrates by the present bill; and the other was the possibility of their labours being still further increased by a bill to be introduced in another Session of Parliament. Now, the clause of the present bill, imposing additional duties, had been negatived by the House, and it would be time enough to make provisions respecting the prospective jurisdiction when the bill was introduced by which it was to be conferred.
§ Their Lordships divided on the question that the clause stand:—Contents 30; Not-Contents 43:—Majority 13.218
