HC Deb 14 August 1850 vol 113 c1069

wished to know whether the report of the Committee appointed to consider this subject had been completed, when it would be presented to the House, and whether and when any change back to the old practice would take place?


, in reply, said, that the report had been already completed, and delivered in to the Treasury, by whom it had been laid upon the table of the House, where it now was. It was not in his power to say what steps the Treasury might take on the subject, and it would hardly be right for the Treasury to pledge themselves to any ulterior course until they had first duly considered the subject. The report was already printed, and any hon. Gentleman could refer to it.
