HC Deb 01 May 1846 vol 85 c1352

, in answer to a question, said, that at the close of last Session he had expressed great apprehension that it would not be expedient to make the consumption of smoke compulsory. The Report of the Commission just issued, so far from removing his doubts, had confirmed them. He should not, therefore, be prepared to bring in a Bill rendering it imperative to consume smoke in all departments of manufacture.
