HC Deb 07 February 1833 vol 15 cc309-10
Mr. Robert Steuart

wished to put a question to the noble Lord, the Chancellor of the Exchequer. The noble Lord had given notice of a motion on a most important subject—the state of the existing Corporations in England and Wales, The question then he meant to put, was, whether there was any similar bill in contemplation for the Scottish burghs?

Lord Althorp

had given notice that he intended to move for a Committee of Inquiry into the corporations of England and Wales, As to the Scotch burghs, the Lord Advocate, had he been in his place on Tuesday last, would have given notice of a motion for leave to bring in a bill concerning them,

Mr. O'Reilly

wished to know whether the inquiry would extend to Irish Corporations?

Lord Althorp

doubted the propriety of including them in the same Committee with those of England. To a separate Committee he should have no objection.
