§ The House resolved itself into a Committee of Supply. It was proposed that 24,000l. should be voted to defray the expense of the Commissions on Municipal Corporations in England and Ireland during the last year.
§ Mr. Hume
expressed a hope, that Government would be prepared to follow up the Report of the Commissioners in the course of the next Session. He looked upon the subject to which the labours of the Commission had been directed as one of the most important which could engage the attention of the Legislature, next to that of Parliamentary Reform.
§ Lord Althorp
concurred with his hon. friend, the member for Middlesex, in thinking that the subject was, next to the question of Parliamentary Reform, one of the most important which could engage the attention of Parliament; and he could assure the House, that it was the intention of Government to follow up the Report with some practical measures in the next Session.
§ Vote agreed to.
