HC Deb 19 July 1859 vol 155 cc83-4

in moving for leave to bring in a Bill to extend the powers of the Conservators of the River Thames, said the object was one which would be approved by the House—namely to assist in the purification of the River Thames. He was afraid however, it would be of a very limited extent. The Conservators had represented to him that certain of their powers were deficient with respect to preventing the conveyance of impurities into the river, and he proposed to bring in a short Bill to supply the defect. Bill to extend the Powers of the Conservators of the River Thames, ordered to be brought in by Sir GEORGE LEWIS and Mr. CLIVE.

Bill presented and read 1°.
