HL Deb 04 April 1851 vol 115 c1030

On bringing up the Report of the Amendments.


suggested that in difficult cases, and especially in cases involving questions of equity, it would be desirable that the Judge of a County Court should have the power of calling in an assessor.


replied that the Bill now before their Lordships was supplemental to the other measure on the same subject, and he did not wish that it should be encumbered with any provisions that could possibly be avoided. It was essentially necessary that no more time should be lost without applying some remedy to evils which formed the subject of very general complaint. He was much obliged to his noble Friend for the suggestion that he had made, but he thought it best to keep this Bill separate from the other.

Amendment reported; and Bill recommitted to a Committee of the whole House on Tuesday next.

House adjourned to Monday next.
