HC Deb 11 May 1858 vol 150 cc495-6

MR. BYNG moved— That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, praying that She will be pleased to issue a Royal Commission to inquire and report as to the best means of affording to the inhabitants of the Metropolitan Districts, within six miles of Charing Cross, a relief from the abolition of Turnpike Gates, and Toll Bars similar to that which the Legislature has already granted, on the recommendation of a Royal Commission to the Metropolis of Ireland.

He said he had been asked by, he might say, thousands of persons to bring forward this Motion. A Commission was already in existence, but they did not represent either the ratepayers or any one else; and though the bonded debts were paid several years ago, they were in debt.

Resolution agreed to.
