HL Deb 09 August 1869 vol 198 c1469

Commons' Amendments considered, (according to Order).

THE LORD CHANCELLOR, in the absence of the Archbishop of Canterbury, moved that the Amendments made by the Commons in this Bill be agreed to. The principal alterations made by the other House were, that they had struck out the reference to "bodily infirmity," which was inserted in the Bill on the Motion of the Duke of Somerset, and had limited the operation of the Bill to two years and to the end of the then next Session; a further Amendment, however, would be necessary, which he would now propose, providing that arrangements made during that period should continue to be valid.

Commons' Amendments agreed to, with an Amendment; and. Bill, with the Amendments, returned to the Commons.
