HC Deb 04 February 1852 vol 119 c160

said, perhaps the noble Lord the First Commissioner of Works and Buildings would be good enough to inform the House what course he intended to take with respect to the Metropolis Buildings Bill, laid on the table at the close of last Session, and whether he intended to persevere with it?


said, he had brought in the Bill with the view of obtaining the opinions of the public regarding it; and he meant again to introduce the Bill in the present Session, in order that it might be referred to a Committee, with the view of obtaining such information as was not to be procured in any other way.
