HC Deb 21 May 1845 vol 80 cc654-5
Mr. S. O'Brien

moved the Second Reading of the Malt Drawback Bill.

Mr. Cardwell

said, he did not know what the hon. Member considered to be the principle of this Bill; but, as it at present stood, he was not prepared to assent to the second reading. He recommended the hon. Gentleman to postpone his Motion.

Mr. S. O'Brien

said, the object of the Bill was to allow a drawback on malt used for the feeding of cattle. He had understood that the Home Secretary and the Chancellor of the Exchequer were disposed to support the Bill.

Sir R. Peel

said, that his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer had made very extensive inquiries through the medium of the Excise, and he found that there would be great difficulty in carrying out the provisions of this Bill.

Mr. S. O'Brien

would postpone the second reading of the Bill.

Motion postponed.
