HL Deb 07 February 1911 vol 7 c42

My Lords, I beg to introduce a Bill to consolidate and simplify the law relating to perjury and kindred offences. The Bill was before a Joint Committee in the last Parliament. I will explain it at greater length on Second Reading. The object is to continue the law as it is, but to consolidate and codify it.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 1a.—(The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Bill read 1a, and to be printed. (No. 8.)
