HC Deb 22 July 1858 vol 151 c1931

said, he rose to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether it is intended to proceed with the Probate Act Amendment Bill and the Divorce Act Amendment Rill, or either of them this Session; and, if it when it is intended to proceed.


said, that what the Government at present proposed to do was to try to pass such clauses of those Acts as were absolutely necessary, in order to amend certain defects which interfered with the administration of justice, and to take out those clauses which were not so immediately essential, and which were likely to give rise to discussion. The particulars of the arrangement would be stated when the Bills came before the House on the following evening.
