Mr. Robert Grant moved the Order of the Day for the House to resolve itself into a Committee on the Jewish Civil Disabilities Bill.

thought it very improper to proceed with such an important measure at that late hour, and he should move, as an amendment, that the House do now adjourn.

supported the Amendment, and declared that, consistently with the duty which he owed to his God, he never would consent to advance those to places of dignity and honour who maintained, that the religion he professed was an imposture.

The House divided on the Amendment—Ayes 7; Noes 63: Majority 56.

The Bill then went through the Committee.
