§ [SECOND READING.]
§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.
My Lords, this is a Bill of a non-contentious character which I do not think requires any lengthy explanation. Its object is to amend Section 67 of the Grand Jury (Ireland) Act, 1836, with respect to piers, quays, and other works, and for other purposes connected therewith, and it provides that the maximum sum which the council of a county may resolve to levy off the county for any work undertaken under the section shall be raised from £300 to £1,500. I beg to move.
§ Moved, "That the Bill be now read 2a."—(Lord Denman.)
§ On Question, Bill read 2a, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House To-morrow.
