HL Deb 01 March 1853 vol 124 c789

Bill read 3a.


said, it gave him the greatest satisfaction that this Bill was now passed and could be sent down to the other House, and he trusted it would speedily become law. It would make the Scotch law of evidence identical with that which was now the English law of evidence, with the exception of one slight addition, in which there was an improvement on the existing English law, but only for a very short time, as he was perfectly confident that the clause in his Bill making that the law of England also would be allowed to pass.

Bill passed, and sent to the Commons.
