§ Amendments reported (according to Order.)
§ THE DUKE OF NEWCASTLE
said, that he proposed to strike out Clauses 8, 9, and 10, which related to the purchase of land from incapacitated persons. The principle was a new one, and he hesitated to adopt it, particularly as the same object, he believed, could be accomplished under the Settled Estates Act. With regard to Clause 39, regulating the grants of sites for churches, chapels, or schools, he had given notice of one in substitution of it, which he believed satisfied the objections heretofore urged against this provision.
§ Clauses 8, 9, 10, and 39 struck out.
§ New Clause moved in substitution for Clause 39, by which the Duke of Cornwall is empowered to grant buildings or sites for churches or chapels, burial-grounds or cemeteries, and for residences for the ministers; and for parochial or district schools, and for residences for the masters or mistresses; and also buildings or sites for buildings solely for the purpose of Divine worship by any denomination of non-conforming Christians; but the grant 797 for any one of these purposes is limited to one acre, or a building not exceeding in value £200.
§ New Clause agreed to.
§ Bill to be read 3a on Monday next; and to be printed as amended. (No 135.)
§ House adjourned at half past Seven o'clock, to Monday next, half past Ten o'clock.
