HL Deb 05 May 1862 vol 166 c1192

Order for Third Reading read.

After a few remarks from Lord ST. LEONARDS,


briefly explained the object of the measure. It provided that every purchaser of land as to which a declaration of title shall have been obtained under the "Declaration of Title Act, 1862," shall be entitled to cause a memorial of the conveyance to him to be endorsed on the conveyance to his grantor; and it provided for similar endorsement on every subsequent alienation of the property to which they relate. He should, indeed, have preferred a general registry of all deeds, but that had been rejected by the other House. He thought, however, that the present scheme would present almost the same advantages.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 3a.


made a few remarks, in which he was understood to object to the Bill.

Motion agreed to.

Bill read 3a accordingly, and passed, and sent to the Commons.
