HL Deb 05 July 1867 vol 188 cc1062-3

Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.

Moved, "That the Bill be now read 2a."—(The Earl of Belmore.)


said, that, in his opinion, the English Charity Commissioners did not receive the approbation which was due to them for their useful labours. They prevented a large amount of litigation, and performed a great sdeal of work most carefully and satisfactorily; and he had no doubt that if the same powers were conferred upon the Commissioners in Ireland, similar results would follow in that country.

Motion agreed to: Bill read 2a, and committed to a Committe of the Whole House on Monday next.
