HL Deb 16 April 1863 vol 170 c178

, in moving the second reading of the Bill, said, that it was similar to the measure which was before their Lordships last Session, with the exception that one clause to which great exception bad been taken had been omitted.


said, that the abstraction of the clause to winch his noble Friend bad referred left him no ground on which to object to this Bill; but he could not avoid remarking that the first two clauses of the Bill would require careful consideration in Committee, for it appeared to him that they only conferred upon the Church Courts powers which they already enjoyed by right of the Church.

Motion agreed to; Bill read 2a, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House To-morrow.
