HC Deb 14 February 1842 vol 60 c329
Sir David Roche

was understood to ask when the proposed Corn-bill of the right hon. Baronet would come into operation, and also when he intended to bring forward his promised measure respecting cattle?

Sir R. Peel

understood the hon. Gentleman to ask him when he intended to propose that the proposed, measure respecting the Corn-laws should come into operation. In reply, he would only observe that he did not see why the law should not apply immediately on the passing of the act. With respect to the second part of the question, he would only observe, that he had never promised to introduce a bill respecting the importation of cattle. All that he had said on the subject was in answer to an observation of the hon. Member for Manchester, when he stated that he did not see the advantage of keeping up a system of absolute prohibition on foreign cattle.
