HC Deb 19 May 1843 vol 69 cc573-4
Mr. Borthwick

wished to repeat the question which he had put about a fortnight ago, with reference to the Poor-laws—namely, whether Govern- ment had determined as to the time at which the right hon. Baronet the Secretary of State for the Home Department, would be able to submit to the House those amendments which he intended to introduced into the Poor-law.

Sir James Graham

said, that in answer to the question of the hon. Gentleman, he must repeat the answer which he had given to a similar question upon a former occasion. It was his intention to bring in a bill for the amendment of the Poor-laws, but he was not prepared to say at what time he should be able to introduce it, nor could he give any information as to its provisions.
