HL Deb 04 May 1865 vol 178 c1458

Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.


moved the second reading of this Bill, which had already passed the Commons without opposition, and said, its importance might be gathered from the fact that in divers parishes in the county of Durham no less than 962 sheep were worried by dogs in the course of a single year. In not one of these cases was any compensation received. The object, therefore, of the Bill was to assimilate the law in this respect to that of Ireland and Scotland.

Motion agreed to Bill read 2a, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House on Tuesday next.
