§ Order of the Day for receiving the Report of Amendment read.
§ 2.6 p.m.
§ Moved, That the Report be now received.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ VISCOUNT CECIL OF CHELWOOD
My Lords, I am sorry to interrupt the business of the House, but I only want to say a word in support of this Bill, because I was not able to be here on the day of the Second Reading. It seems to me such an admirable measure and one so very much needed in correcting a very grave injustice in our law, which has lasted far too long. I think our thanks are very much due to the Government for having taken this matter up, and to the Lord Chancellor himself for having moved in it. I hope he will not be weary in well doing and that he will try to correct a great many other very grave injustices. I hope also that the Government will see to it that this Bill has as eventful and successful a career in another place as it has had here, and that they will not allow it to be crowded out by matters of greater splendour but less importance.
§ On Question, Motion agreed to: Amendment reported accordingly.
