§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.
§ THE EARL OF DEVON
said, he was quite prepared to place before the House the reasons which justified the various clauses which he had introduced into this Bill; but, looking at the great importance of the measure and the variety of its provisions, he thought it would perhaps be more convenient if the House would now read it a second time, and allow him to explain its provisions on going into Committee. He would therefore simply move the second reading of the Bill.
§ Motion agreed to: Bill read 2a (according to Order), and committed to a Committee of the Whole House on Monday next.
§ House adjourned at a quarter past Eight o'clock, to Thursday next, half past Ten o'clock.
