§ The House went into Committee on this Bill.
§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR (LORD HALSBURY)
explained that, in accordance with suggestions, two verbal alterations had been made in the Bill, one of which was the omission of the words, "In addition to."
§ LORD NORTON
was glad those words had been omitted, but he thought a further improvement might be made to the Bill if a provision was inserted to the effect that in certain cases young 988 boys should not be sent to the common gaol for punishment, but to some other place.
§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR
said, that when the noble Lord laid his suggestion before the House in a practical shape they might understand it, but at present there was nothing definite before them.
§ Bill reported without Amendment; and re-committed to the Standing Committee.
