HC Deb 28 March 1843 vol 68 c39
Lord J. Russell

wished to know from the right hon. Baronet, the Home Secretary, whether he intended to proceed with the Factory Bill on Friday next.

Sir J. Graham

said, that after the best consideration which he had been enabled to give the many representations made to him on the subject, and pointing out the inconvenience of going on with only a part of the bill, before the whole was ready, he thought it right to postpone the whole measure until after Easter, but he would then proceed with the committee.
