HL Deb 16 June 1898 vol 59 c396

My Lords, I have to move the Second Reading of this Bill. This Bill is practically the same as the one which passed your Lordship's House two years ago, but which, unfortunately, there was not time to pass through the other House. The object of the Bill is mainly to abolish the old writ of elegit, which has become cumbrous and inappropriate, and to substitute for it a charging order upon land in cases where judgment had been obtained.

Question put— That this Bill be read a second time.

Motion agreed to.

Bill committed to a Committee of the Whole House To-morrow.
