§ Order of the day for Second Reading read.
§ THE LORD PRIVY SEAL (The MARQUESS OF RIPON)
said the Bill was one for the purpose of regulating the salary of the Dean of Manchester, and it resulted from the sale of the late deanery producing a larger sum than was necessary for the erection of a new deanery. The Bill provided for the disposal of the surplus. It was agreed to by the present dean, and any surplus which might be found after having paid the new salary would be devoted to the purposes of the Cathedral.
§ On Question, Bill read 2a (according to order), and committed to a Committee of the Whole House to-morrow.
