, in moving the Second Reading of this Bill, said, it proposed to abolish the Court of the Vice Wardens of the Stannaries in Cornwall, and transfer its jurisdiction to the County Court, with the assent of everybody concerned.


said, he supported the Second Reading of the Bill. He was glad to find in it a clause which he knew had been much urged by people interested in the mining industry of Cornwall. Certain differences between them were to be referred to the judge having this Stannaries Courts authority, and he believed the Bill would be the cause of very great satisfaction in Cornwall.

Read 2a (according to Order), and committed to a Committee of the Whole House on Friday next.
