HL Deb 26 July 1867 vol 189 c167

Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.

Moved, "That the Bill be now read 2a."—(The Lord Chancellor.)


moved the second reading of this Bill, which was founded on the second Report of a Commission appointed to inquire into the working of the Court of Chancery and the superior Courts of Common Law in Ireland. A Bill founded on the first Report, the Court of Chancery (Ireland) Bill, had been passed this Session. This Bill, which, with one or two exceptions, carried out the recommendations of the Commission, was divided into two parts—the first relating to the appointment of officers and the consolidation of Courts, and the second to the superior Courts of Common Law; and he understood that the second part was likely to call forth Amendments to which he should not offer opposition.

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

House adjourned at Eight o'clock, to Monday next, Eleven o'clock.
