HC Deb 20 July 1857 vol 147 cc26-7

said, he would beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, considering the advanced period of the Session and the fact of there being thirty Amendments to the Savings Bank Bill on the Notice Paper, he will consent to withdraw that measure, and refer the whole subject next year to a Select Committee.


in reply said, that looking at the present prospects in regard to public busi- ness, there being many questions of importance still to be brought before the House, he did not think there was any likelihood of obtaining time for the consideration of the Bill referred to. At a later period of the evening the right hon. Gentleman moved that the Order for the further proceeding in respect to the measure should be discharged, which was agreed to.
