HC Deb 17 July 1845 vol 82 cc621-2
Mr. Sharman Crawford

inquired, whether it were the intention of the Government to proceed further with the Tenants' Compensation Bill?

Sir R. Peel

said, that the Bill had been committed to a Select Committee in the House of Lords; but as there was no probability, owing to the delay which had occurred, of that Bill coming down to the House of Commons at such a period as would admit of its proper consideration during the present Session, the Government did not propose to proceed with it But another Bill, growing out of the Re- port, would be taken into consideration during the recess, and brought into Parliament at an early period next Session.

Mr. S. Crawford

said, that in 1843, he introduced a Bill having reference to the subject, and it was his intention to move for leave, before the termination of the present Session, to re-introduce it, in order that it might be under the consideration of the Government and the public during the recess. He trusted that, under these circumstances, no opposition would be offered to the introduction of the Bill.

Sir R. Peel

said, that he should be very unwilling to throw any opposition in the way of the introduction of the Bill.
