THE EARL OF CAMPERDOWN
asked the noble Earl the Chairman of Committees, Whether he could not give a 1204 little longer Notice than he now did—some reasonable Notice—of his intention to move forward with Private Bills? At present, Notice was only given to noble Lords on the very morning of the day on which the Motions with regard to Private Bills were to be made, and unless noble Lords happened to read the Notice Papers very carefully they lost the opportunity they might desire of making any remarks they thought necessary. He himself intended to show that some of the provisions of the Vauxhall Water Bill were not in the public interest; but he found on Saturday morning that the Bill had been read a second time.
§ THE EARL OF REDESDALE (CHAIRMAN of COMMITTEES)
said, that he would take care that a little longer Notice was given.
