HC Deb 24 May 1841 vol 58 c708
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.

Poor-law Amendment Bill put off for three months.
