HC Deb 15 July 1856 vol 143 c862

said, he wished to ask the hon. Under Secretary of the Home Department what steps the Government meant to take with regard to the Burial Acts, and what course was to be pursued where the existing burial-ground had been closed and the Bishop refused to consecrate any new ground?


said, it was not the intention of the Government to make any alteration in the course of the present Session, but in the next Session a Bill would be introduced to revise and consolidate the existing Burying-grounds Acts. The point alluded to in the second part of the question would stand over till then, as it would be included in that measure.
