HL Deb 28 June 1842 vol 64 cc699-700
The Lord Chancellor

said, inasmuch as the bill for altering the jurisdiction of justices at quarter sessions respecting the trial of offences would come into operation in the middle of the current sessions, and would thereby be likely to produce some inconvenience, he should submit a bill for remedying it, which he hoped to pass in the course of the following day. For that purpose he gave notice that to-morrow he should move that the standing orders be suspended. The noble Lord moved the first reading of a bill to confirm certain proceedings of justices at sessions.

Bill read a first time.
