said, a noble Lord opposite (Lord Stratheden) had given notice for to-morrow of the second reading of this Bill. It was one upon which the House had already expressed an opinion and which bad been rejected by their Lordships, and it was out of the question that they should be called upon to discuss it again at this late period of the Session. Lord STRATHEDEN was not aware that the forms of that House permitted a discussion on a Bill the day before that on which it stood for a second reading, and did not join issue now with the noble Lord the Chairman of Committees on points where he entirely differed from the noble Lord in the assertions he bad hazarded. As regards his intentions on the Bill, having given notice for to-morrow, he should state them at that time.

House adjourned at Seven o'clock, till to-morow, Eleven o'clock.
