HC Deb 02 February 1844 vol 72 c207
Mr. Blewitt

inquired what course the Government intended to pursue with respect to the paragraph in the Address relating to the Bank of England and other banking establishments?

Sir R. Peel

said, that the course which he had every reason to think would be pursued, would be, that whilst the Ministers of the Crown would not propose to institute any new committee of inquiry, they would take the responsibility of calling the attention of the House to the charter of the Bank of England, and to other banking establishments. He was not prepared to fix any time for the motion, but it would be brought forward at such a period as would insure its fullest consideration, and ample notice would be given.

Report agreed to.

To be presented to Her Majesty by the whole House.

House adjourned at ten o'clock.
