Leave was given, and a Committee iippointed to prepare and bring in the Bill. NEW INSOLVENT DEBTOK.V BILL. Lord AliTHOHP rose, in pursuance of lii� notice, to move for leave to bring in a Bill lor the llelief of Insolvent Debtors. The Bill wUich he.ineMiit 10 propose was the same as that w'hicli he liad so l^feiy brought into the last Parliament. ]i was thertfu/e quite unnecessary for him to trespasa much upon the time of ihe House, as there must be a consitler-able number present who, whilst in the last Pailin-meoi, must have put themselves in possession of Ihe measure he then intended, and.whicii he now meant to inlroduct: u second lime. J}ut as some uew Members may wish lor an outline of his plan, he should beg leave briefly 10 state it. The l.v.� principal objects of his Bill were-f^rsl, to give creditors a moie easy power to detect concealment of properly on the part of fraudulent debtor.<; ar.d. his second was, to enable the Commissioners of thw Couri 10 ex-amine, out of doors, into all matters touching the conduct ujid property uf-the insolvent, 80 as to sat in fy tte creditors at large. These were the principal alterations he proposed introducingiu his new Bill. Mr. Lockhart-� Does ihe Noble Lord meaa to confine the scope of his Bill to the two objects he has mentioned ?" Lord Altuorp-" Certaii^ly not; but they are the principal points." Mr. LocKllART expressed the satisfaction he felt at the Noble Lord's answer, and al finding timt tint new Bill meant to embrace the subject in a coiii-preliensive manner. The two Bills alseatly in fnrct^ certainly required much attention aiid alteration; tliey were merely coh linedlo the analogous siluu-lion of the general practice respi ciiog debtors anil creditors, without at all making--proper disliiictions. There was one class of debtors that wae, for iii-staiioe, intangible by either of these Bills-lie meant those debtors who had incurred duioages fnuiided on actions at law, and who had dune great injury lo their neighbours ; be^ide^, in rasps of pennllies iiiflicled under particular Statutes, ihey were permitted their discharge just us ordinary-debtors. This ought not to be permitie  compel the transfer of Stock, without toaking the Buu^: of Irelwid or the Grtind Canal CoJnl)any i� purty ther.ettf J wid' also to "regulate
