§ Order of the Day for receiving the Report of the Amendments read.
§ Moved, "That the said Report be now received."—(The Lord FitzGerald.)
§ LORD ASHBOURNE
said, he would suggest that, as there had been several new Amendments of importance placed upon the Paper, the present stage of the Bill should be postponed for a few days.
§ LORD FITZGERALD
said, he was willing to postpone the Report of Amendment until Monday, and the new clauses of which he had given Notice to the third reading stage.
