§ MR. WARBURTON
complained of the restriction of the judicial appointments to barristers at law. A clause ought to have been introduced, declaring that the judges should have no right to compensation if they were hereafter to be entirely prohibited from practising as barristers. If it was now too late to introduce a clause, the House ought at least to receive the most complete assurance from the Government that no such claim would be admitted.
§ SIR G. GREY
was quite willing to give the most distinct assurance, that the exclusion of the judges from practising as barristers hereafter could not be acknowledged as giving any claim to compensation. The Lord Chancellor thought it exceedingly improbable that those gentlemen could have extensive practice; and would no doubt be disposed distinctly to intimate that the extended restriction on practice would not be allowed to constitute any claim to compensation.
§ Bill read a Third Time and passed.
§ House adjourned at a quarter past Three o'clock.
