§ Captain Polhill
said, he observed that there were upon the paper thirty-seven orders of the day, one of which was for the further consideration of the report of the Poor-law Amendment Bill. He wished to know whether the noble Lord the Secretary for the Colonies, intended to proceed with that order that evening.
§ Lord J. Russell
said, he would state his intentions on the subject when the House came to dispose of the orders of the day.
§ Mr. Walter
said, he had not distinctly heard the noble Lord's answer. He hoped the noble Lord would be good enough to state on what day he meant to proceed with the Poor-law Amendment Bill.
§ Lord John Russell
said, it was not his intention to proceed with that bill during the present Session of Parliament.
