HC Deb 01 March 1855 vol 136 c2091

put the following question to the First Lord of the Treasury:—The bribery and corruption which prevailed at the last general election having given rise to an Act against bribery and undue influence, expiring at the end of the next Session, whether the Government contemplate a renewal of that Act?


said, it appeared to him that the Act alluded to by the hon. Member ought to have a fuller trial than it had yet received; and, in all probability, the Government would propose its continuance for a longer period.
