HL Deb 07 June 1849 vol 105 c1264

in moving the Third Reading, said, he would take the opportunity of thanking his noble and learned Friends, the law Lords, and the Members of Her Majesty's Government in that House, for the valuable support they had given to the Bill. It would now go elsewhere, but he was happy to understand that it would receive the support of Her Majesty's Government in the other House. The Bill was very important as part of a general digest of the law of England, and especially as a digest of a very important part of that law—the law of debtor and creditor. He hoped to see it followed by a digest of the whole of the civil and criminal law of this country.

Bill read 3a. Amendments made. Bill passed.
