HC Deb 06 March 1857 vol 144 c1942

said, he wished to know if it was the intention of Government to introduce a Bill to amend the Burial Acts; and, if so, whether there would be any objection on the part of the Government that a clause similar to Clause 8 of the Burial Act for Ireland, passed in the year 1853, be introduced therein, securing certain sacred rights to bury in family vaults in existing cemeteries.


said, that his attention had been directed to the subject, and should he, in the next Parliament, hold the office which he now held, he should submit a Bill on the subject, but he could not at present state what its provisions would be.
