HC Deb 08 April 1859 vol 153 c1549

said, he wished to ask Mr. Attorney General whether it is his intention to bring before the House that evening his Motion relating to the Consolidation of the Criminal Laws?


said, that in consequence of the absence of his right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney General for Ireland upon public business it would not be convenient for him to bring forward that evening the Motion of which he had given notice, for leave to introduce certain Bills to consolidate and amend the statutes relating to the Criminal Law of England and Ireland. It was his intention, however, on Thursday next to call attention to the whole subject of the consolidation of the Statute Law, and to ask permission to bring in, pro formâ of course, the measures of which he had given notice.
