HC Deb 10 July 1856 vol 143 c555

asked the President of the Board of Control, whether he contemplated bringing in a Bill to provide a Judicial Tribunal in India, with appeal to the Privy Council in England, for the investigation and decision of such claims on the private rights of the Native Princes and grantees of Government as were now decided by the Executive Government without hearing and in the absence of the parties?


replied, that he had no intention to bring in such a Bill, as he did not see his way to any satisfactory result. A measure of the kind would effect a complete change in the constitution of the Government of India, and would require great consideration.
