HC Deb 23 May 1843 vol 69 c806
Mr. Labouchere

wished to know from the right hon. Gentleman opposite (Mr. Gladstone) what was the particular course he intended to pursue with respect to bubble companies? He should also like to know whether Government intended to adopt any measure with respect to the mal-administration of the merchant seamen's fund?

Mr. Gladstone

intended to revive the select committee of 1841, relating to such companies. The subject to which the second question referred was one involving very complicated details, many of which were already under consideration. As to the course which it might be advisable to adopt, he was unwilling at present to pledge himself to any particular measure,
