HL Deb 21 March 1899 vol 68 c1508

Motion made, and Question proposed— That this Bill be read a second time."—(The Lord Chancellor.)


My Lords, I beg to move the Second Reading of this Bill, which is urgently needed, and which enacts that notwithstanding anything in section 12 of the Supreme Court of Judicature Act, 1875, or in section 1 of the Supreme Court of Judicature Act, 1890, if all parties to an appeal or Motion consent to the Appeal or Motion being heard and determined before two Judges of the Court of Appeal, the Appeal or Motion may be heard and determined accordingly, subject, nevertheless, to the same right, if any, of appeal to the House of Lords as if the hearing and determination had been before three judges.

Question put.

Bill read a second time, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House.

House adjourned at Five of the clock.
