HC Deb 25 May 1842 vol 63 cc737-8
Sir R. H. Inglis

would ask the right hon. Baronet, the Secretary for the Home Department, whether it was his intention to renew the Parochial Assessment Act, which would expire in two months? There was a great evil in the frequent renewal for a short period of important acts.

Sir J. Graham

replied, that he had already stated that the whole subject of rating must come under discussion; he did not think it desirable to introduce a matter of such difficulty in the Poor-law bill; but as he anticipated that it would be necessary to bring the whole subject of rating before the House next Session, he would renew the present bill for one year.
