HC Deb 26 June 1857 vol 146 c443

said, he would beg to ask the right hon. Member for Droitwich (Sir J. Pakington), When the Commission appointed to inquire into the present arrangements for transacting the judicial business, Civil and Criminal, of the Superior Courts of Common Law is likely to make its Report; and whether he has any expectation that such Report may be made in time to have a measure founded upon it introduced in the present Session?


replied, that the Common Law Commission were now considering their Report, which he had no doubt would be presented before the termination of the present Session. He was, however, afraid that he was hardly able to answer the latter part of the hon. and learned Gentleman's question, because he did not yet know what amount of legislation the Common Law Commission might recommend, nor what might be the duration of the present Session.
