§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.
THE BISHOP OF EXETER
, in moving that the Bill be read a second time, 778 said, that it was intended to provide a remedy much desired by the clergy and parishioners for certain evils in a parish in his diocese. The parish was very large and had four rectors, who had charge in turn of the whole parish, and of the principal church, and also of a chapel of ease. The result was a good deal of friction, things did not go on well, and the people were very much dissatisfied. The practical object of this Bill was to extend the general law to this particular case.
§ Moved, "That the Bill be now read 2a." —(The Lord Bishop of Exeter.")
§ Motion agreed to;Bill read 2a accordingly.
