§ Order for Third Reading read.
§ After a few remarks from Lord ST. LEONARDS,
§ LORD CRANWORTH
briefly explained the object of the measure. It provided that every purchaser of land as to which a declaration of title shall have been obtained under the "Declaration of Title Act, 1862," shall be entitled to cause a memorial of the conveyance to him to be endorsed on the conveyance to his grantor; and it provided for similar endorsement on every subsequent alienation of the property to which they relate. He should, indeed, have preferred a general registry of all deeds, but that had been rejected by the other House. He thought, however, that the present scheme would present almost the same advantages.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 3a.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Bill read 3a accordingly, and passed, and sent to the Commons.
