§ Amendments reported (according to Order.)
THE EARL OF LONGFORD
opposed the Amendment. The clause would expose householders to perpetual Vexation. The regulations in the earlier clauses affecting master-sweeps would, he thought, be quite sufficient to insure the object in view.
§ THE EARL OF SHAFTESBURY
thought that the Amendment might endanger the safety of the Bill in this and certainly in the other House. A case had been pointed out to him in which a householder was convicted of a similar offence under the law ns it now stood, and he hoped that his noble Friend would withdraw the Amendment.
§ Amendment (by Leave of the House) withdrawn: Bill to be read 3a To-morrow.
