HC Deb 09 April 1851 vol 115 c1300

MR. E. B. DENISON moved that the Order of the Day for the second reading pf the Metropolitan Cattle Market Bill be discharged; and, in doing so, he wished to say that a circular had been published, in which it was stated that this particular Bill had been promoted by the. Great Northern Railway Company. On the part of that company, he begged to say that they had had nothing to do with it, and it was not fair that such circulars should be published. He knew not whence it emanated, but he disclaimed all knowledge of and all participation in this scheme. Last autumn he was asked to join with others in promoting a scheme merely for indicating a site that was thought desirable for a new market, and he consented to do so on the understanding that two of the directors of the London and North-Western Railway Company also joined with him. But, either on the part of the Great Northern Company or individually, he disclaimed all knowledge of this scheme.

Second Reading put off for six months.
