HL Deb 30 July 1866 vol 184 cc1654-5

Moved, "That the Order of the Day for the Third Reading of this Bill be discharged."—(The Lord Redesdale.)


objected to the Bill being dropped. It was generally agreed to be a very useful measure; and although objections had been raised by the right rev. Bench to the Bill as first introduced, the required alterations had been made in the present Bill.


regretted to be compelled to withdraw the Bill, but on such a subject he held that it was desirable there should be a general concurrence of opinion. As that could not be secured, he deemed it best, under all the circumstances of the case, to withdraw the Bill.


said, that no reason having been given for the withdrawal of the Bill, he should feel it his duty to divide the House against the Motion.

On Question? their Lordships divided: —Contents 28; Not-Contents 19: Majority 9.
