§ The MARQUESS of LANSDOWNE
moved the Order of the Day for receiving the report on this Bill; and in doing so suggested, as the noble Duke near him (the Duke of Wellington) and another of his noble Friends, had given notice of Amendments 460 which might lead to discussion, that the most convenient course to pursue would be to lay these Amendments in a regular shape upon the table, and take them into consideration on the third reading.
§ The DUKE of WELLINGTON
said, that he would willingly adopt the course suggested by the noble Marquess with regard to the clause which he was about to propose.
§ The clause was then read by the clerk at the table; and on the Motion of the Duke of WELLINGTON, it was ordered to be taken into consideration on the third reading of the Bill.
§ The same course was agreed to in respect of the Amendment proposed by Lord MONTEAGLE.
§ The EARL of ELLENBOROUGH
gave notice that he would move, upon the third reading of the Bill to-morrow, that such an alteration should be made in the second clause as should place the justices exactly in the same position as to the exercise of their discretion with regard to going to a meeting, and proclaiming it, as that in which they were placed with regard to the dispersing of it. He said that he would move an addition to the clause to render its meaning clear.
§ Amendments reported.
§ Bill to be read 3a To-morrow.
§ House adjourned till To-morrow.
