THE CHAIRMAN OF COMMITTEES (THE EARL OF DONOUGHMORE)
My Lords, the Motion with reference to Standing Orders that appears in my name on the Paper deals with a very small point regarding the manner in which consents to Estate Bills are signified to your Lordships. I think that the proposals here made will work quite as efficiently as the present system, and more conveniently. Unless your Lordships desire that I should explain this small change at length, I will satisfy myself by moving that this Motion be agreed to.
§ Moved, That the Standing Orders relative to Private Bills be amended as follows:—
§ 163. After ("aforesaid") insert ("the consent of")
§ Leave out ("consent thereto before") and insert ("be proved to the satisfaction of")
§ 166 and 167. Leave out the Orders.—(The Earl of Donoughmore.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to and ordered accordingly.
