§ Sir James Graham
said, seeing the hen. Member for Finsbury in his place, he would appeal to him not to bring forward his motion for 974 going into a committee on the Players of Interludes Bill. He made the request on no account of personal convenience; but he had, in conjunction with his noble Friend, the Member for Hertford, paid some attention to the subject, and his noble Friend had a measure in preparation which would probably meet the views of the hon. Member.
§ Mr. T. Duncombe
expressed his pleasure that the subject was taken up by her Majesty's Government, and his unwillingness to stand in their way. He was glad that the propsition he had brought forward had merited attention. The Order of the Day for the committee on the bill was discharged.
