HC Deb 19 June 1856 vol 142 cc1686-7

said, he would beg to ask the right hon. Baronet the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he intended to take the discussion on the City of London Corporation Reform Bill?


said, he had been desirous of finding a day in the course of the present week for the second reading of the London Corporation Bill. It now, however, seemed unlikely that it would come on during the week, but he would give his hon. Friend early notice when the Bill would be taken. It was proposed to take the National Gallery Site Bill and the Cambridge University Bill tomorrow, if possible.


(in reply to Mr. Newdegate) said, he hardly thought the Church Rates Bill would come on to-morrow, and as other business intervened to prevent the Wills and Administration Bill being proceeded with on Monday, as previously arranged, his hon. and learned Friend the Solicitor-General would bring it on on Thursday next. Of course the arrangements contemplated by his right hon. Friend (Sir G. Grey) depended upon getting through the Estimates. Otherwise the Government would begin to-morrow with the Estimates. The Agricultural Statistics Bill would be taken to-morrow if there were time.
