§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR
My Lords, these four Amendments improve the position as to the amount of chattels that may be taken in execution. Again, I do not think I need trouble your Lordships by going into these matters. Perhaps you will accept my view that they represent an improvement for the general justice in that respect. I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in these Amendments.
§ Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendments.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
