§ LORD MACNAGHTEN,
in moving the Second Reading of the Solicitors (Ireland) Bill, said, that the object of the Measure was to place the solicitors of Ireland and their apprentices in the same position as the solicitors and their apprentices of England occupied as regarded education and discipline. The Bill was a consolidation Bill, and therefore he need not enter in detail into its provisions. The Measure had passed through that House last Session with the approval of all his noble and learned Friends, and therefore he would content himself with moving that it be read a Second time. ["Hear, hear!"]
§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR OF IRELAND (Lord ASHBOURNE)
said, that he could not allow the Second Reading of this Measure to pass without expressing his approval of the objects of the Bill. He had always taken a deep interest in the matter. He hoped that the Measure would pass easily, not only through that House, but also through the House of Commons. ["Hear, hear!"]
§ Read 2a (according to Order); and committed to a Committee of the Whole House on Monday next.
§ House adjourned at twenty-five minutes before Five o'clock, to Monday next, a quarter before Eleven o'clock.
