HL Deb 19 July 1844 vol 76 cc1071-2
Lord Beaumont

moved the second reading of this Bill.

The Lord Chancellor

said, that this Bill went to repeal no less than twenty-nine Acts or parts of Acts. With regard to many of these Acts no question could arise as to the propriety of their repeal, and he had therefore to propose that the Bill should be allowed to pass with reference to those particular parts upon which no question could arise. During the vacation the Government would take into their consideration the other Acts included in the Bill, but in the meantime he thought it would be better to read the Bill a second time, with the view of its being committed on Monday, when the Amendments might be introduced.

Lord Beaumont

assented. Bill read a second time.
