HL Deb 01 April 1870 vol 200 c1047

presented a Bill to amend the Law of Bankruptcy in Ireland. The main purpose of it was to place non-traders on the same footing as traders. It had twice been approved by their Lordships, and, though it had not passed the other House, he believed there was very little objection to it. With regard to the Question of which he had given notice as to the re-introduction of the Common Law Courts (Ireland) Bill, he had since become better informed as to the scope of a measure which had been brought in this Session, and it was therefore unnecessary for him to trouble the noble and learned Lord (the Lord Chancellor) with such a Question.

Bill read 1a; to be printed; and to be read 2a on Tuesday, the 3rd of May next. (No. 61.)
