Order for Second Reading read.

moved that the Order for the Second Reading of this Bill be read, for the purpose of being discharged. He desired in making his Motion to state that he had never proposed to do more with the Bill this Session than to introduce it, print it for the consideration of Members, and, if he should have the opportunity, endeavour to pass it into law in a future Session. The Bill was one as to which he could claim but little merit; it was the work of his friend Mr. Fitzjames Stephen, whom he had been able to employ in consequence of the kind liberality of the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Motion agreed to.

Order discharged; Bill withdrawn.
