§ The Order of the Day for the adjourned debate on the Second Reading [17th June] of this Bill being read.
SIR GEORGE LEWIS
said, as the provisions of the Bill involved some serious considerations he was desirous of further time being allowed for their examination. So far as he understood it, the object of the Bill was that the salary of the Assistant Judge should be increased from 558 £1,200 to £1,500 a year, he being prohibited from private practice. Now that involved two considerations, one being that the addition to be made to the salary was to be paid out of the Consolidated Fund, and the other was that the Assistant Judge should be prohibited from private practice. He therefore would propose the postponement of the measure until Monday.
§ Debate further adjourned till Monday next.
