HC Deb 22 March 1841 vol 57 cc454-5
Sir E. Wilmot

begged to ask the Attor- ney-general, who had brought in a bill to facilitate the administration of justice in boroughs, what provision would be made with respect to contracts entered into between boroughs and counties which had not been perfected?

The Attorney-General

said, he had no hesitation in stating that the contracts would be declared invalid ab initio.
