Lord Lyndhurst then moved a new clause, to secure to freemen the right of voting, as was secured to them in the Reform Act, in respect of Members of Parliament. After a short discussion, the gallery was about to be cleared for a division ; but Lord Mel. bourne, who had opposed the amendment, said, as the numbers had so preponderated against him on the former division, he would not trouble their Lordships to divide.
