HL Deb 31 July 1860 vol 160 c417

rose, and

Moved to Resolve, That as regards the Militia Ballot Bill, inasmuch as if it do not become Law immediately the Militia Ballot will at once come into operation; and as it is not advisable in the present Circumstances of the Country to resort to that Method of raising Men for the Militia, the Circumstances which require Legislation on the Subject Matter of the said Bill are of such real Urgency as to render the immediate Consideration of the same necessary.

On Question, Resolved in the Affirmative.

Bill read 2a (according to Order), and committed to a Committee of the Whole House on Thursday next.
